We had a group, Isa Mundo, pay to have our road carved out thru half our property so the 17 acres is more useful. It was an amazing job done by our guardian and his dad and his uncle and two cousins. It provided much needed money for 3 or 4 families. THANK YOU ISA MUNDO FOR YOUR HELP AND DEVOTION.
The top picture is the next level of our property where we need phase 2 of the road to start. When done the road will connect all 3 levels of our 17 acres making it possible to use the entire property. The next pictures are of the road as it was literally hacked out by machete and pickax and shovel. The men did an amazing job working from 6 in the morning until dark. They all desperately needed the money to feed their families. The final picture is of Jose. our faithful guardian, who along with his relatives dug our road.
The second and final phase will cost approx $3000.00.

Chicken Coop

August 2008, volunteers Kevin Callahan, Ken Mangum, Krystal Rogers, Skylar Marsden, Bonnie Shupe, and Tim Allred worked together to fund and build a brand new chicken coop for the orphanage. This chicken coop will house up to 50 chickens, and will provide up to 50 eggs a day for the orphanage. Not only does this provide regular eggs for the orphanage, but the excess can be sold to local residents for a profit. It will also be part of the children’s responsibilities to care for and feed the chickens as well.
We are so grateful that the new chickens will have a safe and comfortable living space, and the building will also help keep them healthy. Great work everyone, and thanks for all your service!

Orphanage Cabinets, Shelves, and closets

May 2008, volunteers Kevin Callahan, Jesse Callahan, and Chris Syphus funded and built 24 cabinets/closets/and shelves. Previously in the kitchen, food was stored on the floor, along the walls, and left in their bags. Now, there is enough room for surplus supplies, and the kitchen is organized. The children are now able to hang their clothes, have a space for their personal belongings.
Bunk beds and baby cribs were also built by these individuals. Every child has their own bed, and every infant has their own crib. They couldn’t be happier.
Kevin also purchased a stove for the kitchen so Martita, the orphanage cook, can provide for the children. Martita was ecstatic with her new gift, and was overjoyed to have a beautiful new stove for her kitchen.
