Familytrip to the beach
Our holiday program culminated in a big family outing to the seaside. Early in the morning all villagers, children, housemothers, office staff, volunteers and caretakers, set out for the beach with the big rice truck. Beside a thrill of anticipation and excitement, swimming rings, bathing suits and of course lots of rice were not missing! For some of our newly admitted children it was the very first outing to the sea. Their joy in seeing white sand and waves was overwhelming and some water rats barely left the ocean. Of course splashing around took top priority in our program and the athletes could try to stand on a surfboard. For diner we all sat together and later on everyone enjoyed various games and even dance performances in a playful atmosphere at the beachside. Despite the heat the outing was a complete success and a couple of days later the little ones are still telling with shining eyes of how they conquered the big waves.
We volunteers would like to heartily thank you for supporting our holiday program. It is great to see what such an outing but also the simple activities mean to our children and the whole Children´s Village community!
