In the afternoon we loaded up in the bus to head to Rescue & Restore…a home that breaks the cycle of kids growing up on the streets. What an amazing work Freddy & Daisy & their staff do to bring the kids in, offer them a good education, and help them work through the trauma from their lives on the streets. There is a family atmosphere in the home, with the kids calling out “mommy,mommy” and “daddy, daddy” to Freddy & Daisy. The affection they have toward each other creates a wonderful dynamic in the home.
Tonight we had a party for the R&R; kids, complete with a delicious meal, singing by Team Norway, and dancing by the kids. Kristina also taught some of the girls how to make bracelets with beads.
We heard some of the children’s stories. The stories of how they were living on the streets, being abused and neglected, and how their lives are being transformed at R&R.; You can’t help but celebrate this place of hope. What an amazing home, and a great group of kids.
Join us tomorrow for our visit to PACT Aids home!
