Orphanage Visit

Dear Matt and Mar,

We are trying to make this a ‘thing’ for the both of you, so it will be a twice a year visit to either an orphanage or other similar places. Otto (Matt’s close friend) went to shelter for homeless women, and I think this is the place where we shall be going for Mar’s birthday in November.

You two and us are lucky to have what we have, we may not be swimming in gold coins like Scrooge McDuck, but we have food whenever we are hungry, blankets when we are cold, air con when we are hot and a roof over our heads, we are healthy and life is full of opportunities.

Pakkred Babies' Home
For others life is a struggle as soon as they open their eyes to the world, so this year we took you two to ‘Pakkred Babies’ Home’ to make a small donation as it was Matt’s Birthday. It was great to see that the facilities are in great condition and the place is full of toys and activity zones (even a small swimming pool), looks like a good environment for children.

Coincidentally, this week was also the week for Matt to bring Barneby home, haa haa haa haa, not the most jolly of places to take the class teddy and then having to write a page of text on it (just write it big Matt, less room to fill) haa haa haa.

A few weeks after, as mentioned earlier, we went to the shelter for homeless women with Otto and his parents, and the atmosphere was very different, most of the tenants must have had a very, very hard life, which had affected them physically and mentally, we’ll leave that for another post.
