Until the HALO Foundation were able to provide funding, thirteen children were sleeping on the floor in three mud huts.

Now, HALO fully supports 32 children at the orphanage which according to the Foundation “has become very much a family”.

The volunteers from BATUK spent four days working hard to provide the orphanage with a new dining hall for the orphans to eat in.

They also built new storage units for the children, provided book shelves to keep the text books on and laid paved walk ways to allow them to get around during the rainy season.
