A Visit to the City Dump
These three boys ran from us as we approached, but not before we were able to ask them about their "mama and papa." No "mama and papa" they said before they scaled up the hill of trash. The odor was indescribable as it is extremely hot now in Krygyzstan.
This picture was actually taken from a distance, but Julie was able to pull up the zoom on her camera. This beautiful young girl was hiding in the trash pile. She is one of the thousands of children abandoned or neglected in this country who need a child welfare system that can care for them and provide safe, clean, nurturing and loving care.
We had some exciting developments regarding training at the national level. As soon as I know more details and plans are more firmly made, I will share this incredible development!
The journey continues....
