July News 2014 – No. 1

Thank you for your ongoing support of the Rescue Mission for Children. This is the first of a regular newsletter to keep you informed of whats happening at the Centre. We currently have 9 boys and 13 girls living in at the moment.

School is in full swing and the children are working hard at their schoolwork. Each morning Prajobe our maintenance man drives the children to school and then collects them each afternoon. After dinner each night the children do their homework with the older ones helping the younger ones when needed. Today is Thursday so the children have sports day at school. Every Thursday they wear sports uniform to school.

This week we have had the Adamson family from Swan Hill, Australia visiting. Michael has had a long involvement with us and this is his fifth visit. He has come with his wife and four children. He has been helping to clean up the workshop and much valuable discussion has been had. The children were treated to chips and ice cream after school.

Each newsletter I will share a little of the journey one child has had before they came to join us. Roongmee who is ten years old comes from the Burma border and she has been with us for this year. Her family has split and Roongme had been living in various households for a long time. Now she has the stability of one place, can go to school and smiles everyday. Her two brothers are with us also.
