Bacolod Day 7March 28, 2017 on the Philippines ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C
It's been a week!
Today, Adila's group started early as they prepared sandwiches for the orphans. We reached the Holy Infant Nursery and met Ms. Juliet, the directress of the orphanage.
Our group interacted with the 23 kids at the nursery, whose ages ranged from 1-7 years old.
We spent the whole day in the nursery and our task included feeding, nursing, playing with the kids, and even assisting the kids as they "passed motion" or defecated.
It was heart-wrenching to find out how some of the orphans journeyed before reaching the nursery. One of the 2 year-old-boys was abandoned in the wet market and luckily someone brought him to the orphanage. Many more kids came from similar situations, I hope their young memories will not remember how they were abandoned but how they were rescued and loved at the nursery. I hope that through adoption, some of them get a family and a home.
A whole day of fun nevertheless with these orphan (foundling) kids.Read more
