5 x a big Thank You

Thanks a lot to friends and family who were helping out over the last couple of weeks to help people in need over here:

Project 1: My brothers family and my neighbors back home (Family Haller) financed the refurbishment of all bathrooms in Casa Hogar de Jesus. Basically all the houses where the kids live in have a big bathroom with urinals and showers which were disfunctional. Which made at hot days the houses smell like urin and showering for the kids kinda difficult. With the money given from my brothers family and Hallers we now have closed up the urinals (not needed anymore) and refurbished the showers of 6 houses.A big Thank you for that !!

Project 2: Maria and Hans who have been giving money before so we could afford more cutlery have given more to provide a family in need with a roof for their home. The family lives with 5 kids in a little "Casa" with one room of 15 sqm - the roof itself was made out of plastic foil and in a country where you got heavy rain seasons that is a hard circumstance. So we were able to put up a proper roof on the house as well as double the families living space and with a bit of more money the family will be able to put up a second room.

Project 3: A big Thank you to Shamim who donated money so we can provide a local family with 4 kids with a running water connection. Means as of now the family has to carry water to shower, cook, drink and flush the toilet from a relatives house to their own. By connecting the house to running water, the family will have a whole other level of living comfort. This will take a bit longer and therefore I dont have pictures for this project yet as we are dependend on the local water-department to set everything up. (two of the enclosed kids are kids of the family who will be getting the water connection!!)

Project 4: is finally finished and our homepage is online (check it out and let me know if you find any bugs). Markus has provided the server-space to host the webpage gratis - which is normally a running cost and helps Casa Hogar to avoid to increase running costs.

Project 5: Thanks to Richard and his football foundation we will be receiving new footballs over the next weeks. Casa Hogar de Jesus started a new project about 4 weeks ago: a football/soccer school - so our kids and kids from outside the orphanage can receive proper training (which does not exist in Ecuador other than for the big clubs). We were overwelmed by the receiption of offering the training and are now short on such simple things like footballs. Richard and his foundation are happily supporting us in that afford and will provide some footballs.

I guess this leaves me for saying a big THANK YOU to everybody who has helped out over the last 3 months to make a difference to the kids living here and local Families. It is great to have friends and family who support good affords over here and the kids as well as the staff over here are very very thankful as well as overwelmed by how much you guys were helping out. In totoal over the last 3 month you guys were providing support in all sorts of ways worth around 2000$ !!

Muchas Gracias !!
