Life remains largely unchanged, in terms of daily responsibilities, at Hope House. However NO adoptions have been allowed since the pandemic began, and with the admission of 3 new babies in June (following negative tests for Covid) staff at Hope House are now caring for 22 babies. No visitors or student work placements are allowed, but recently the staff have been able to receive in-kind donations (food, diapers, baby clothing, laundry soap) at the front gates once again. In the past five months OK Kids has been able to provide financial support to Hope House on 4 occasions (in addition to the regular support from Adopt-a-cot supporters). Since no visitors or local in-kind donations were allowed from May to July, OK Kids provided financial assistance to purchase regular milk, a special formula for a baby with a milk allergy, fruits, vegetables and other necessities. In August we provided funds to purchase a new electric kettle and a microwave, which are used many times each day when preparing food for the children. With no adoptions taking place in the last 8 months, many babies have now reached the toddler stage and we are pleased to report that OK Kids has provided support to purchase supplies for a Stimulation Program to assist in the development of social and learning skills based on Montessori techniques and activities. The instructor works with the children each day, and has purchased crayons, paper, paint and paint brushes, baby scissors, wall charts, alphabet blocks, an educational floor mat, a wading pool and sand and sand toys to use with the children. We consider this money an investment in the future of these children.
