Paula Hayes Dining Hall and Community Center
In honor of our dear coworker Paula Hayes, Orphan Outreach is undertaking the construction of The Paula Hayes Dining Hall and Community Center at the Madeleine School in Bungoma, Kenya. Paula had a very special place in her heart for Africa and especially Bungoma. This seemed the perfect place to establish a long lasting building that nurtures and protects children in her name. The more than 200 children at the Madeleine school are fed two meals a day but have to sit on the dirt and under the trees while they eat. It often rains which makes it even more difficult for them to eat their meals. Funds already given to Orphan Outreach as a memorial for Paula total $23,500 and are being used for this project.
Update: We have now raised a total of $25,470 for the Dining Hall and need only $4,300 more to complete the construction. Donors have also provided 9 of the 30 dining sets (table and 2 benches) needed for all the children.
