As promised, here is the first orphanage that I have committed to. I have been in contact and scheduled a day to spend with them. I will be bringing miscellaneous supplies that they request closer to that date and they will also be escorting me to the market, and with the help of a couple of the older orphans, I will be purchasing food from a list that their staff has prepared.
It was opened in 2005 in honor of Jodie O’shea, an Australian that was killed in the 2002 bombing. They currently house 95 children. Click here if you would like to visit their website to read more. They have made the decision to not receive any funding from the government, so they rely solely on donations. Their website offers multiple different ways to donate, from different levels of sponsoring a child to a list of specific things they are currently needing. If you look back at my previous post, you will see that I referenced a fire extinguisher, yup, that was for Jody O’Shea’s Orphanage.
Just to make it easy for you, here is the gofundme link again. I have also had a couple people request paypal to avoid any fees… if that interests you let me know and I will get that to you. Thank you to everyone that has already donated!! I am so excited and overwhelmed with all the people that have already committed! Much love!
