Art Exhibition Success!

We’re delighted to report that a recent exhibition of the children’s art at our partner, REBUILD Globally’s, workshop was a complete success!

The day was made extra special by a song sung by the artists and visits from UN personnel who have offered to host other art sales and exhibitions on their bases. None of these exciting developments would be possible without your support.

On-going health checks and English classes mean that the kids at HTDC continue to grow and develop. It’s great to visit the orphanage, be greeted in English, and know that these vulnerable children are receiving so much more than just a simple primary school education.

Thanks to you, we’re able to provide skills that will give the kids a leg up to better jobs and more options in the future.

We recently asked the director of the orphanage to write about his experience with EDV, and there’s one particular sentence that sums up what you’ve done for these vulnerable kids.

A big thank you to everyone that has given EDV financial support…Without you we would never have been so far and you proved to us that there is always hope even after the darkest moment.

One last time, thanks so much for your support of the Hands Together to Defend the Children Orphanage.
