David with Under Christ’s Summer Care at Abiding Savior Lutheran. Summer Care children donated $100.00 towards Khor Wakow Christian Academy’s student uniforms.
We're so excited to share these photos of the children of the Khor Wakow village area beginning their educational journey! The first and second photos show kids in class with their textbooks. "Although, these children do not have chairs to sit on or desks to write at, they are so happy to have the opportunity to attend school." - Brenda Hill
The third photo is the kids during a break or recess. Although the construction of the school is currently on hold, KWSP hopes to build a hut to temporarily serve as the "school house" until the conditions are such that the school can be safely built. Thank you, donors and volunteers, for helping to make what is depicted in these photos a reality!
