Day 1. Two sleep deprived chaps arrive at our Tombo children’s village, our home nestled high up in the hills on the outskirts of Freetown.
It’s most definitely rainy season! Heavy storms break up our first day as we share stories with the children and learn how they are doing at school. They are such a delightful bunch of kids all growing so fast! It’s hard now to believe years ago they were living on the streets or on rubbish tips.
Between downpours we manage to buy cement, roofing sheets, sand, fix bicycles and make a start on building a new kitchen, repair homes and the new chicken project.
The day ends at 10.30pm following a long meeting with staff as we share dreams and plans of Orphfunds future here.
More storms and then came the mosquitos....
