The walls are up and the Coconut Palm Trees that needed to come down came down today. The man cutting the trees climbed them with nothing but his bare hands and a little axe. Of course, the kids were fighting to get the nuts as they were falling from the tree which was a bit scary given they have much more courage than brains at this age.

Late in the day a friend brought some donations including toothbrushes. It turns out that only 2 kids had them so it was a great donation. They also brought soap for their bodies and clothes which they were out of also.

It is quite strange but I get absolutely no pleasure from giving these donations...more sad that people have to go with out such basic necessities.
