Visitors from Ethiopia

From the beginning of July till the end of August we are going to have with us a boy , a girl and her teacher from Ethiopia.
Those of you who read the Blogs will know they are coming over to be operated in the Son Dureta hospital.
The first two weeks will be taken up with the preop and post op procedures and once they are discharged they will remain another 6 weeks on the island in convalescence.

We need help:
1)Taking the children to and from the hospital.

2)We need one or various homes that will have them during their stay. During the days the children are in the hospital we hope to have the teacher stay in a hostal in palma that belongs to a member. That way the teacher will be near the children and she can also get to know the city.
Once the children leave the hospital we will need a place or places (in sequence) that can have them to stay for the following 6 weeks. We understand that 3 people to stay for 6 weeks is a long time but if we find a rotation system then it can be a good experience for all involved.

3)We also need volunteers to take them around, entertain them and to show them the island.
We would also need some good souls to take them to buy some toys and clothes as they come from very humble backgrounds.

If you should like to be an active part of this project please send us an email stating exactly what in, and when you would like to collaborate.
