Since September 1, our project has kicked into the final phase of development. The Refuge has added a tent city, bathroom facility (nearly completed), and finished 90% of the upstairs of the community center.
Here are a few pics of that taking place:
We provided each tent with electrical hook-ups, lights, carpet, swamp coolers, water tanks, and fire extinguishers.
Sub-ceiling, a couple doors, a few small windows, and enclosing the gable ends are all that remains to finishing the big hall... with an estimated capacity of 300. Initially, it looks to become the public cafeteria for our guests staying in the 'tent city' - made up of 20 families from the Mosul region.
The outside staircases are slated to be complete within the next week as are the gable ends. Please pray for the final construction pieces as they are being fitted into place and for our guests whose lives have been swept along in the collateral damage of the raging IS monster.
We are finally seeing the World Orphans' Refuge Community Center coming into it's own. Thanks again for standing with us in this work.
