Child Sponsorship Report 2011, from Xiengkhouang, Laos

A child sponsorship report from Xiengkhouang in Laos. This charity report is from the end of 2011.

Dear Sponsors,

SOS Children’s Village Xiengkhouang had provided a sincere support for 175 children in need for long term care living in 12 family houses in which 2 new admitted children from the countryside of Xiengkhouang province and 6 parentless siblings living at Sayaboury province in the North of Laos, found their new home in our village since September of this year and their biological parents were the victims of this flooding situation.

93 children living now in the village are growing up in physical and mental state, enjoyed learning to live in clean habit and doing actively the house works which could help them in future to stand on their food by themselves in the society : in earlier morning they cleaned off the house inside and surroundings washed their clothes, prepared the breakfast before to school ; after school together enjoyed doing the vegetables garden.

Our 20 youth boys were happy to live in their homes. Nowadays they tried to stand on their foot by themselves with a good care, help and guidance from our 2 educators and the good cooperation from their village mothers who paid visit for them at least once a month . Those children continued to keep doing the house works in daily life at youth house as same as what they learned from their village mothers in their family houses. They found the fresh foods in the market and together prepared the breakfast, lunch and dinner for themselves. They learned the administration in the family how to use correctly the monthly budget, after school doing vegetables garden, feeding fishes, frog and chickens belong of their activities. Besides that playing guitar, football, volley ball and betanque are their favorite sports.

62 young boys and girls at Dormitory and Hostel: kept their good relationship with the community where they live and had a satisfied result on education. On grand vacation they tried to visit their SOS families and spend their holidays together with their SOS brothers-sisters.
