Beautiful, free and strong
Here we are struggling to stabilize the situation in the village. For three days we have had no water and electricity in the village. But more important is that our relief workers are out in the field, delivering food to local communities. So at least we are making sure many children get their daily meal. We are also out in the refuge camps, and seeing the situation there it always reminds you how important it is to establish safe shelters for lone children.
The spaces for children accommodated with our families here are already full. So we rush to put up tents. Perhaps the space is enough to care for 200-300 children properly but we are preparing the additional facilities which may be needed to host 500 children.
