On Wednesday, Kezi brought over her daughter Olive (9) and her neice Mellissa (4). We had never met Mellissa, and she was adorable! We made played with them and made some more cookies.
On Thursday, we helped out with the feeding program they do here. The kids (there were some adults too) come from extremely poor families, and some of them are orphans. We gave them each two cabbages, meat, and rice. When all of the food had been passed out, they picked up the leftover pieces of cabbage off the ground. Then they went home to cook their food. You could tell the kids were embarrassed to be there. They were not nearly as playful as the kids from the refugee camp. They played with the bubbles a little bit and accepted some candy, but they were much quieter and sadder than the refugee kids.
There was one older man who was so sweet (see picture)! He didn't appear to have any teeth, but still smiled all the time. We found out that he lives in a mud hut and only has one set of clothes that he wears all the time. He hardly had anything but was still incredibly happy.
