Over 1000 pre-fabricated blocks donated to the Kenscoff orphanage

DSCN0258Crossroads Church in Monticello, Illinois had a fundraiser that brought in $1000 that was designated for some building blocks to help the small orphanage at Kenscoff.  They wanted to donated sturdy, pre-fabricated blocks to help the Kenscoff orphanage build their new orphanage.  We were able to buy 1080 blocks and transport them to the orphanage last week.  Immediately, the masons started building walls with them and two days later when we went to take photos, there were new walls up and very few loose blocks!

The Church had visited the orphanage  back in February and saw the need.  They went home and had a small fundraiser one Sunday after the church service and raised the funds!

A huge thanks goes out to them from the Directors of the orphanage, Kesnel and Manno!  They are one step closer to moving the children into a larger and more sturdy home!  The orphanage also receives help from another American group that helped them purchase the land for the orphanage and is now helping them complete the building.
