The Adventures continue!! Today began with a visit to Childlife Touch Orphanage ( I told my team that this is truly my "favoritist" day!!!! These sweet children and caring, compassionate ladies are such a joy and are the reasons I return every year !! They welcomed us with their sweet smiles and angelic voices singing their welcome song that rings in my head even as I'm writing this. We introduced our team and they sang more songs. The team set up a health clinic and spent individual time evaluating each child and attending to their medical needs. We even had blood pressure screening and eye glass clinic for the caregivers.
Leonard and I traveled in town to the market to purchase many food, pantry and hygiene items for the ladies and children. I also paid my annual visit to the Chemist/pharmacist to purchase items to provide them with medication for the children. The rainy season is upon them which means many colds and illnesses as well as the constant threat of malaria.
Marina showed the children how she could do back flips! Needless to say, everyone was impressed. This inspired the children to show all the "moves" they had.... Somehow this morphed into us teaching them the chicken dance and hokey pokey!! Soooo fun!!
