Women’s Team April 2017 – Day 4

Tuesday 4th April 2017

Value, Partners, Vision.

Today was possibly our best day yet. 

We trekked to Donk Primary School.

A tiny little school with two classrooms perched on a hilltop and surrounded by magnificent mountains.  There were no other dwellings in site and the school is not accessible by road. The school has 11 pupils. We had a lovely fun packed day with these wonderful children. 

Our group divided into a medical team and an education team.

The medical team checked the children’s eyesight so that if necessary they could be referred to the optician.  They also measured heights and weights, demonstrated teeth cleaning and hand washing finishing with craft making of funky hands for the children to take home.  

Meanwhile, the education team read the “Hungry Caterpillar” story and helped the children make paper butterflies and portray the life cycle of the butterfly on a plate.  We all really enjoyed the day and were delighted to give the children little goodie bags containing toothbrushes, soap, nailbrushes and stickers. 

So overall, we had a memorable day and certainly for us we were left with a sense of gratitude for all that we have and the words “live simply so that others may simply live” are in our thoughts.
