Waterproof Kitchen!

Unless your kitchen is in your basement, you probably never have to worry about it flooding. Emmanuel Orphanage’s kitchen, however, had a dirt floor and an old, leaky thatched roof. And because they live in a tropical country that receives heavy monsoon rains, they often had trouble starting a cooking fire or keeping it going so that they could feed their children.

Thanks to five people who gave to Orphan’s Tear’s Special Projects Fund, however, we provided them with a new kitchen. As you can see, the children will not be going to school hungry anymore because of flooding! The kitchen also includes a roomy eating area that can be used for many other activities when it’s raining or to get out from under the heat of the tropical sun.
