Hostel Now Open

We managed to find a flat and move into it this past week. It's very near to Orchid Garden which will make it easy to manage. Mountain Fund was able to provide beds, mattresses and some other necessary items to get things started but much more will be needed, especially as winter sets in. Warm blankets are the biggest challenge. 

We've got ten girls living now in the hostel and room to add five more. It's great knowing that these girls will no longer face sexual abuse and molestation. I am adding photos of the hostel, though as you will note, the kitchen is still bare. We're working on that now. 


Thank you !!!!
