These college students spent the week serving in Rio Bravo at an orphanage. This was the first time Project Fortify had partnered with this orphanage. Currently this orphanage houses 21 kids ranging from 8-17 years old. The facility was in need of lots of repairs. Our project for the week was to demolish some of the deteriorating walls and rebuild them with cement blocks. We also worked on building a laundry room on the roof of the orphanage. It was definitely a hot and hard work week, but we were able to accomplish a lot for them.
This was the kids first week of summer break so we took them to the water park. For many of them it was their very first time at a water park. This water park has 3 slides, a large pool and some kiddie pools. Not your typical American water park. We enjoyed getting to share time with the kids and develop relationships with them.
