New Jerusalem Children’s Home, boys residential unit pie has got smaller over the past months, we believe that many of you hold this words closer to their hearts “It takes a village to raise a child”.
We thank you for having a cup of coffee with us, for picking the pieces doughnut you have chosen, for giving our boys hope. Confidence that they will soon move into their new residential unit.
Last week we posted pictures of the tiling progress, a step closer to moving the children into the newly built residential unit. On Sunday we showed them, children and youth of the home, pictures of the progress, from when we started with the brick work to the tiling work – currently underway. Their smiles and giggles, were heart-warming. You can see how much they want the building, we showed them pictures of all the rooms – we told them that, in bigger rooms they will be 4 bunk beds – allowing only 8 boys in this specious rooms, each with his own wardrobe, the medium sized bed rooms will take 2 bunk beds and they will shelter 4 children, yes each owning a wardrobe too.
Its amazing how touching it is, hearing children whispering to each other “I will be sharing with you, no mara the bigger rooms will be more fun” giggling, wearing that child excitement on their faces – the feeling was priceless.
