AFCECO Newsletter: August 2010
Dear Friends of AFCECO orphanages,
It has been a month of juggling for the staff and volunteers of AFCECO, while the children hunkered down and took all their midterm exams. Firstly, the final series of vaccinations against Hep B were administered. Thanks again to sponsor Doffie Rotter for her persistence in providing us with the resources and motivation to get it done! Health is one of the tenets of our mission. As you can imagine, like a school the orphanage is a clearinghouse of germs. We teach cleanliness at all times, (M.P. Bashardost’s first comment when he visited was “They are so clean!”) and we are taking steps to supply each orphanage with a high quality water purification system, which would alleviate a major source of mild but nagging stomach illnesses. We are also continuing the health care education program in our clinic, and have found a potential source for eye exams and glasses.
