THE LITTLE TREASURES OF FINETOWN

The last distribution I reported back on was Evergreen Day Care in Finetown where we were joined by Annette and her son Luke and nephew Eric.  With all the extra help that day, we were actually able to do two other distributions in Finetown.

After leaving Evergreen, we headed to a very small Day Care Centre.  This Day Care is so small it did not even have a name.  It is run by the principal in a well-built corrugated iron shelter at the back of her home. 

 

Standing outside this tiny Cay Care Centre in Finetown.

We arrived at nap time and did not want to excite the children after having just spent a good hour or so playing with the children at Evergreen.  So we gently draped the blankets over the children and left them with toys, beanies and tops.

This may look like piles of blankets in rows, but under each blanket is a sleeping, or ought to be sleeping, angel!
