 On the spot VISIT to the CHILDREN at SENDEN HOME.

Irène, Marie-Paule and Jean-Jacques are at Senden Home for 15 days.

On Sunday 16th November, there was a big celebration for the 40th birthday of the inauguration of Senden Home – a recreational programme with dances, songs and moving testimonies from past pupils of the Home. About 300 people were present for the festivities. Everyone had lunch on the premises. It was a rare occasion for some to eat a simple, yet well balanced meal.

Irène, Marie-Paule and Jean-Jacques went to meet some of the children at their homes with their families. Many live in squalid conditions. Most families live in squats, in tiny shacks made out of cardboard and wooden planks, without access to water or electricity and more than often without toilets.

At the Home, three new children have just arrived in off the street. They cannot start school before the next school year in June as either they don’t yet have birth certificates or they arrived too late at the Home to be enrolled at the school.

The other boys go to the local school.

Within the Home, there’s a pleasant, fraternal atmosphere where everyone takes part in the everyday life of the Home, just as within a family.
