From September 28, 2020 Almost a year ago, a child was born in Cité Soleil. The mother was my first friend during the early days of Santa Chiara; she clearly was the best worker we had. She signed control of her two-year old daughter to me, making me the child’s father.
From September 27, 2020 Last week I hired a weekend activities director. Her name is Brenda. She worked as the activities director at an orphanage for four years. Keeping all these kids busy on the weekends is a huge task.
From September 26, 2020 I wanted to retreat to my office and close the door. As I walked to the stairs, I saw four of the older girls—Jinette, Johanna, Woody, and Bethanie—standing together while everyone else was seated and eating. I asked what the kitchen ladies prepared for lunch. They said “blee.”
From September 25, 2020 Yesterday, I provided you with a breakdown of the 50 kids living at Santa Chiara. Besides the kids, five women live in two of the Santa Chiara apartments.
