Home Visits. “You are Welcome”.

We went on several more home visits today with Project Hope to meet and interview parents and caregivers whose children may be eligible for the Orphan and Vulnerable Children project.  These visits are not scheduled so we often take the parent or caregiver by surprise.  The first thing you hear is “you are welcome”.  Then we are invited inside and the mother or caregiver scurries for stools, wipes them off and offers us a seat.  All before knowing why we are there.  Project Hope Staff speak to the mother/caregiver, observe the condition of the child and the home, check the health books and complete the program paperwork.  We engage with the children and caregiver as well. The children sit quietly while the adults talk.  They are often shy but so well behaved and well mannered.  We continue to be humbled by the warmth and beauty of the people here.

    The children look so sweet, I hope the project will enrich their lives and health.
    You and Carol are doing a very generous mission. Bless you both.

    It amazes me how welcoming they all are (: while we sometimes do not even answer the door, they welcome before they even know why you are there. Beautiful (: I don’t know anyone who could refuse either of you, but this seems to be something they would do for anyone. This is what mother culture should look like. Love to you from an icy east coast town (; xxoo
