Phase I of the New Destiny Children’s Home was completed August, 2013. At this time, a team of sponsors traveled from Alexandria to paint the interior walls and build wardrobes for the kids.

Below are some before and after photos of the new house!

Much progress has been made on rebuilding New Destiny Children’s Home in the past few months! The external and internal walls have been stabilized and rebuilt, the perimeter has been secured with higher walls and barbed wire, and the first-floor bathroom is roughed in with 3 toilets, 2 sinks, and 2 showers. All the windows and doors still need to be put in, and the electrical work is yet to be done. This week they will start excavating to pour the concrete slab in the back. After the concrete slab is done, the walls and cover will be put in. This is urgent, as this back eating/cooking area is currently covered by a tarp that will certainly not make it through the impending rainy season. A stairwell will also be constructed to get to the second floor. $10,000 more is needed to complete this phase, not including furnishings. Pictures below!
