Yesterday we held our 4th annual birthday party for the children of the Chausy Orphanage. Again this year it was hosted by Corbin Evans, a grade 8 student at TISS Intermediate school. Corbin raises the funds for this party through various means throughout the year including bottle drives and Crispy Creme donut sales. Here is Corbin and his Mom, Jennifer, dancing at the party. Needless to say the party was a huge success.
Before we see a few more pictures from the party, I’ll back up to a couple of other activities from the day.
Today the village of Chausy held a celebration. They have created a new park and are planting trees to honour families and citizens. A family that we provided water for last year was included as the outstanding family in the Chausy region for 2019. CAC was honoured to be included by the family and asked to attend with them. Here is Dave and our driver/interpreter Anna along with the family with 4 of their 6 children.
Dignitaries were also in attendance including the past
Today we were presented with a concert in our honour by the children of the Chausy Orphanage. It was a wonderful event and really showed off the talent of the children. This was an extra-curricular activity but the children put their heart and soul into it. This is an exciting time as the children know that every spring the Canadians arrive.
The concert was in the format of a story of Spring arriving with the Canadians,
