Orphanage Visits today

Today we are off to visit CRM Orphanage and School where LOEP has partnered for the past three years, underwriting the teacher salaries. Sam kargbo, director of the institution, is an old friend who has visited with us in the US.

We are also scheduled to visit THINK, a facility that houses female ex-combatants who were forced into combat as very young girls (some as young as pre-teen). Their war experience is often particularly brutal and many had babies and now young children. THINK has been working with these young mothers since war time and Browntown Church has partnered with them in the past providing sewing machines and supplies.
