After an early wake up at 7.30, we met the children for breakfast at Emunah children’s home, a safe haven for children at risk, where we were able to develop closer and stronger connections and relationships. After breakfast, all of the children went off to school, which gave us time to decorate their Cheder Ochel for Chanukah.
It brought us joy just knowing how happy our decorations would make the children, and how grateful they would be for all our hard work. As soon as the children came back from school and walked past the dining room their faces just lit up and we were surrounded by uncontrollable and contagious smiling.
Their smiles warmed our hearts and we joined them for lunch and activities where closer bonds were developed. After some time with the children we walked down to the shops and had our daily Aroma coffees, but also passed a toy shop where we bought beads and string to make friendship bracelets for the little girls.
