Partner: Heroes of the Nation

January 21, 2006 was a very joyous day at Heroes of the Nation as the older boys moved into their new dormitory. Those moving over from the old site used the donkey and our Land Cruiser to move mattresses and belongings. An atmosphere of celebration prevailed, with much laughing and fun.

Completion of this new dormitory allowed Heroes of the Nation to take in more orphaned children. On Monday morning the new children arrived. It was precious to see the boys greet and welcome the new orphans – they know what it is like to be a newcomer, and so went the extra mile to be warm, helpful and friendly. The “old hands” were eager to show the new boys around, helping them settle into the dorm, and quickly involving them in games and activities.
