Even the Bees are getting their winter coats on... thanks to Aigoola
The cows at the rehab centre will have a home in time for winter as well.... We have purchased enough honey and preservatives at wholesale rates to pay to put the new roof on. The honey will then be distributed to those we are supporting

Vera gets a new bike to help her save some time when she goes around to check on all the seniors she supports.
A new boy at the orphanage is a little shy of us.... My heart breaks for these kids ... it must be so hard when they first arrive...
more food dropped off... soon they will be ready for winter.... thanks to those who are sponsoring kids here...
