Orphan World Relief Team

Church Outing!

L-R: little girl L (almost 3 years old), Rick, Jennifer, Doug, the triplet's mother, Jason, Nancy...and of course the famous triplets!

A few years ago, I received an email from a man named Doug Riggles with a questionnaire was attached. I filled that out and later heard that Casa de Amor was one of three children's homes being chosen to be funded by a new organization, Orphan World Relief. Since then OWR has blessed us with a quarterly donation according to our current number of children. OWR also helped us purchase little girl A's hearing aids at reduced cost last year.

This month Doug is here with a few of his key people. During their ten day trip they will see different aspects of our work and also explore Cochabamba.

As the caregivers expressed so well this morning after their little presentation with the oldest kids, we are so grateful for their support and hope they have a great time visiting!
