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.
