Foyer d'Orelph Orphanage
We built four classrooms, a new kitchen, and a drainage system at the Foyer d'Orelph Orphanage to improve the living conditions of the 53 chidren who live there.
- Provide safe, dry classroom space for all the children at the orphanage and at least a further 50 children from the surrounding community by building roofs on six unfinished spaces, providing six dry, safe classrooms and building furniture for the school
- Create a dry, sanitary cooking and eating space by providing roofing and concrete floors
- Address sanitation issues by building concrete walkways between the kitchen, school, living quarters, and a drainage system
- Sanitation improved by new cooking area and concrete walkways
- All classroom roofs complete
Prior to the earthquake, the Foyer d'Orelph Orphanage was a small association which looked after ten children. After the earthquake, the population swelled, and the directors found themselves with 53 children in their care.
While they have tried valiantly to look after the children, they simply don't have capacity to take care of all the children's needs. As a result, the children's sanitary conditions and educations have suffered.
We've addressed both problems by building new classrooms and a drainage system.
