Very joyful fatigue that brings me happiness to my soul..

Kamala and her team had a busy day shopping and packing and delivering Christmas food and gifts to one of the smaller orphanages we have helped .  

Julie asked if they liked it .. Kamala said "Of course they did , there was Kabasa !"

Mean while Vlad was busy delivering to a few other larger orphanages in the valley . 

Red river was first up with assorted fruits and Juice  and cleaning supplies .

Next up was the Ivonofka treatment center where we just put in the new heating system .  Along with the new couch for the common room they also got fresh fruits and juice .  At the same time while there we were able to give them money for the medications that they need .

Over at the baby orphanage they brought the apples oranges and Banana's and fruit, but also brought diapers. 

Back in Bishkek the team got ready for Christmas for the blind society families .  150 families will get a gifts for their kids and a bag of groceries with everything needed to make their own special Christmas celebration . 

Along with deliveries to the orphanage Vlad and his team were packing and have started delivering another 150 food hampers to families .  This time they have added a few special treats and some special Christmas meals .. they are also giving a package of masks with each hamper as well .  Stay tuned for more pictures of these deliveries over the next couple days ...
