A Visit to Refile

Missy and Mike Young and family

We were very happy to have some visitors from the USA at Refilwe. Chris La Trobe and his partner Gundula Moldenhawer came from Chicago to view the almost completed Global Giving House. The first picture is of the Missy & Mike Young, Refilwe visitors who hail from Washington DC, USA. The house Mother and Father Maureen and Harry are pictured with Chris and Gundula with the first young orphaned children to live in the house (second picture). The last picture is of the children in their new bedroom.

Thanks for your generous support and enjoy the photos!
