In mid-January we were blessed to receive two new long-term volunteers, Abby and Sara. Abby first visited Love & Hope Children’s Home on a summer team in 2007. We are happy that she chose to return and spend five months with us! Abby has been covering caregivers’ shifts when needed, helping with homework, tutoring, and has even become our in-house seamstress. She is also a great cook and has supplemented our menu with some great new meals. It has been fun to watch Abby form bonds with the little girls as she helps them with homework most afternoons!
Sara had never been to El Salvador but made the brave decision to come stay at Love & Hope for the next year! She is specifically helping with the little boys every day. Sara helps with homework, plays, accompanies them to the tienda, and gets them ready for bed (among many, many other daily tasks). She even gets up at 4:30am every morning to help them get ready for school! Sara’s quiet spirit and good sense of humor are perfect for the job and everyone is happy to know that there are some extra hands helping with the little guys.
Welcome Abby and Sara! We are so glad you are here!
