Recently three of the children have contracted Malaria – they are pictured in the photo. This is not something new at Safe Haven Orphanage, but usually the common problems of Malaria and Dengue get worse into July and August when the rainy season is at its peak. One of the girls is in hospital, but she is making a recovery. Safe Haven Orphanage Widow''s ClubOn a lighter note, Tasanee is thinking about forming a Widow”s Club as there are lots of single women around the orphanage. Although she maintains that “Women are strong, men are weak” we think that a few strong men around the place would lighten the load on Tasanee and the women, particularly when it comes to jobs like building the toilets and clearing rocks from the new land. Here is a photo of the Widow”s Club founding members.
