The floods and mudslide of 2017 destroyed Newton community, including the orphanage and partially build school Touch the Nations had built. The children, staff, furniture, pots and pans all relocated. We have support to begin constructing a new school for these children. Same people. New location.
Christmas funds were sent early to all 4 orphanages Touch the Nations supports, to allow ample time for shopping with covid restrictions, inflation and scarcity. Children and staff will celebrate with a feast, and all kids will receive a new outfit and new shoes.
Thanks to amazing response from supporters, we were able to provide THREE milk cows to replace the one lost at Joseph House children’s home in Ethiopia. Thank you!
Exciting News! This month, we begin building 2 new schools–one in Sierra Leone and one in Liberia. This is the first time we’ve been able to take on 2 building projects at once. Thanks to everyone who is making this possible!
I love the joy and togetherness in this photo I just received from Samuel Menyongar. These women have received rice. Thanks to all who support Touch the Nations.
