AFCECO Newsletter: July 2016
Dear Sponsors and Friends,
July was an intensive month for all the children due to their studying for and taking their school exams. Midterm exams finished on Monday July 25th and most of children are on holidays now for about two weeks.
New Mehan orphanage faced significant difficulties recently when the water pit in the orphanage dried out. The pit was 20 meters and we had to dig it down making it 50 meters long to make available water for the orphanage. We brought water from other places in a tank for almost a month. Fortunately after digging down the pit we have now sufficient water available.
Thanks again to the generous donation of Terry Cardwell we celebrated the birthdays of her sponsored child, Huma and several other children with July birthdays. It was Huma’s first birthday ever and you cannot imagine how exciting it was for her being able to celebrate her day. We also celebrated Samia’s birthday on July 11 thanks to her generous sponsor Jill Sheldon. Jill started her first sponsorship in July 2007 exactly nine years ago and now sponsors two children. She has each year provided her sponsored children with special birthday gifts. It’s truly amazing that we have such generous and kindhearted people in the AFCECO family. You have all been a blessing to us!
