Its that time of year when we need to start plans for the planting, not just our fields but those of about 200 other families.
I hesitated to share this earlier as we are falling a bit behind on some other needs and was trying to clear them off before starting the seeds , but as many of you know .. planting does not wait .. the other needs we are working on right now are still there but we have to move on . here is a recap :
Vlady house fire repairs ... $3700
Tanya men's home washroom renovations ($1500 )... $700 to go
Baby orphanage room dividers ..... $700
but that said ,Its time for us to prepare for the gardens again , planting both the fields on the farm and those of 200 families who would not otherwise have the resources to plant . We will start many of the plants in the green house ourselves . as well as the seeds we would like to bring them groceries at the same time so that they are not tempted to eat the seed potatoes, and so they will have the energy needed to plant the gardens . for this we would like have a budget of $10 a family for seeds and $10 a family for food .. total $20 x 200 = $4000 in total this will see over 200 acres of garden planted and producing food.

As I am sure you saw, we are raising money for Tanya so she can renovate the washroom at the mens home and even bring them Hot water for the showers. We are just over half way there , and just need another $700 to make this possible.
Please remember Tanya in your prayers as she is dealing with Covid one more time. She has been home quarantining, and has had the Dr come to her a few times. She had a friend who brought her food, but now the friend is quarantining with covid and Tanya is feeling a bit better so is bringing food to her friend .
We had one of our boys return to the farm for a visit on the weekend . It was nice to see Akbar again and know that he is ok. he is living with some family and going to school and working .

Last week I did a post about a few needs and wanted to give you a happy update . One of the needs came from Tanya, and it was to renovate the bathroom at the mens home so that they might have warm water for the shower and a toilet that works . maybe even clean up and repair some old water damage and get them a mirror. We were looking for $1500 USD.
We had a friend do a birthday fundraiser that ended a couple days ago that raised $500 CND and today I received another $500 CDN unexpectedly from another friend. So we now have $1000 CDN ($780 US) So that just leaves us with $720 to go . W can't wait to get the renovations started.
