There’s so much that goes on at Precious Kids Center in a month and we’d like to give a few stories from this past month to keep you all in the loop of what is going on here.
We’ve had a few construction projects that we were able to complete this past month. The first was a new classroom that a team from Harbor Point Church helped us build. We were able to move our Occupational therapy room to have more room for the kids and the teachers will take over the old therapy room when school starts back up again so they have a break room and a quiet place to grade papers.
We also have a well and were able to build some water tanks to store the water and help with some of our plumbing issues.
Schools closed a little early this month, but here are a few fun moments from the first term.
This month we also said goodbye to our sweet Baraka. Baraka means blessing in Swahili and even though we were only with him for a little over a year we are truly blessed to have had him in our care.
Baraka’s mother abandoned him on the side of the road and he was brought to us through the children’s office. We quickly realized that he had epilepsy and were able to get him the proper medication to get them under control. In July 2019 we started to realize that his health was starting to decline. He was taken to the doctors nearly weekly and his condition continued to worsen despite going to many different doctors. Since January he had been in an out of the hospital almost weekly. He would improve a bit and then seem to change drastically overnight. Last Wednesday, he went to be with the Lord and we were able to do a small service to celebrate his precious life with our kids at the center. We will miss his sweet smile, but are glad to know that he is out of pain and in his new perfect body in heaven.
