Email from Dan...23 March 2008
Easter Sunday in Rwanda is low key. The Rwandans decorate cars and a table in the church with flowers.
I visited the orphanage today that we will all visit in June. The orphanage is the most horrible yet beautiful alternative homeless street children in Kigali have. The children are clean and well clothed. Attached is a photo of the orphanage. I wish I could describe the orphanage but words cannot convey the experience.
According to Dan (he called me yesterday!), Sidney (fellow e3 campaigner, loves Rwanda) has gotten 350 pairs of shoes donated to the orphanage and they are being shipped from the USA. Sidney is an accountant at a major aeronautical company and has conducted an independent audit of the orphanage - it passed with no problem - it is run with integrity and compassion.
