Wednesday has been the best day by far. Jay, Lynda and I were assigned an orphanage we have not been to yet this week. There are over 100 kids at this location and a mixture of kids with disabilities and children who were malnourished and have ended up here for refeeding programs. I toured this orphanage once last year and was very impressed with all the leaders do for the children here as well as the programs in place-a fish hatchery, a chicken coup, rabbit cages, a garden, etc.

Last year the caregivers received all 26 lessons from our teaching manual. This year they requested we complete hands on teaching for all of the nannies of the disabled kids. The first assignment was to help with bathing. I opted to watch the kids while Jay and Lynda helped with the teaching. I hope I don't sound too graphic, but the biggest concern with bathing was teaching about cleaning an uncircumscribed penis, hence why Jay was assigned to help with bathing. Many of these children had never had their foreskins retracted and it was important for the caretakers to learn that this needs to be done every day.
