Having recently returned from a trip to China, there is so much good news to report! At the special needs orphanage supported by Global Partners in Life we were able to see the impact of a special contribution we received. The support we received enabled us to wire money to the orphanage for having the interior walls painted. The lady that leads the orphanage was so excited that she had a painter lined up right away!
To my knowledge these walls haven`t been painted since it was initially built! With as many as 33 children living there at one time, you can imagine how many smudges and hand prints were on the walls. Also, before the walls were painted, if you touched one with your hand, you would have a chalky residue on your hand — but now the walls don`t leave any residue when you touch them.
Here are some during and after photos. The day I was there it was raining and no lights were turned on, but I could tell as soon as I walked in that the walls were brighter. Since we have remodeled the bathroom and the kitchen, those walls having a fresh coat of paint on them made the rest of the house look that much worse, but at least now they are clean and bright!
I feel so fortunate to know people that give generously to the work Global Partners in Life is doing in China, and I feel so thankful that together we can provide a better life for the children in so many ways. Yes, we provide for the children’s medical needs, food, care, education, and even a cleaner home to live in!
