Rehoboth Children's Home Roof Renovation Campaign
We are so excited that Bonnie's Heart Baby Home in the Philippines is now complete and able to accomodate 24 infants and toddlers ages 0 to 3 years. We would like to turn our attention now to rennovating the original buildings that house the older children at the Rehoboth Children's Home as well as the building that contains the preschool and elementary classrooms. Specifically, the roofs need to be replaced on all three of these buildings!
Over the past year or so, we have not been taking any new children above the age of three but rather letting the numbers drop as children have left for adoption to where we can now fit all of the older children into one home. This will allow us to do the renovation on one home and then transfer the children and do the same on the other home. This is a project that we are very anxious to complete as we want to be able to operate at full capacity again as there are many children in the Philippines that need a safe haven of care.
Total cost of the roof renovations on three buildings is $30,000.
We have approximately half of the needed funds. Please consider giving to the roof renovation project at the Rehoboth Children's Home by donating here: Children's Home Roof Renovation (scroll down until you see the button for Children's Home Roof Renovation).
Thank you so much!
Rehoboth Medical Clinic Birthing Unit
Marks First Year Anniversary
March 1st marked the first anniversary of the opening of the Rehoboth Medical Clinic birthing unit. On that opening day ayear ago the sign had gone up on the front of the building and within a matter of a few hours, a 17 year old girl from the mountain tribes came through the door in labor and safely gave birth to a baby boy. Since then, there have been 73 deliveries at the clinic and 459 prenatal visits! For the first anniversary celebratory event, pregnant mothers from the community gathered at the clinic for baby shower type games, snacks, lunch and a demonstration by a pediatrician on infant massage and touch therapy. Each mother received a care bag with baby items.
