Accommodation What type of accommodation can you provide?
- Private Room
We won’t ask you money but as you will see, we live in economic precarity and sometimes it is difficult for us to provide basic care for our orphans and students. Most orphans sleep together in old and rustic rooms as you can see in these pictures. These kids are very happy: always smiling, even if they cannot afford “a normal” life with normal houses, normal books and classrooms and in spite of the fact that some of them don’t have families.
We are working for them to achieve a better future with all the comforts and warmth that they deserve.
