It has continued to rain almost constantly since Hurricane Matthew. This has caused flooding in many areas. One of our trees fell, but fortunately not on House of Hope. We chopped it up to have fuel for cooking.

We have also welcomed more children to House of Hope. Many of these children are ill and need to be nursed to health. One young girl has tuberculosis, which will require a stay of nine months to a year. Other children will be here for just a few weeks. Often, a family member accompanies them to help care for them.

This means of course that we have more mouths to feed. We need food… rice and dried beans…. cooking oil… money to buy eggs and an occasional chicken… and hope that you will respond generously as you have done in the past.
