Usual first thing first...we still need +/-$6,000 to complete the Foyer House at Kimbondo Orphanage Renovation. So far:
- New bedrooms built? Check.
- Bathrooms in new building? Check.
- Paved the parasite-yielded dirt walkway? Check.
- Remodeled the dining room and hallways? Check.
- Constructed a laundry room and a storage room? Check.
- Funded lofts and a major renovation of one of the two old bedrooms? Check?
- Finished the old bedroom renovation and loft? Working on it.
- Funding for second bedroom renovation and lofts? Still not funded.
- Industrial strength washing machine. Still not funded.
Help us and/or spread the word to others who might help us:
As for the bedroom renovation, Madlen has the funds and is overseeing the following:
- the installation of lofts, since ~20 kids are sharing each room
- new floors and walls
- installing huge air- and light-producing windows.
We'll update photos as the work develops. But I just received this incredibly cool slow-mo assault on the dingy old walls and a photo of the new windows that were just installed. I don't think it takes a lot of imagination to picture the difference this will make when the work is completed. And again--we hope to be able to do this with both bedrooms.
And the new windows...feel the light and smell the breeze!
