The orphanage Pa van der Steur is where children with no parents, or whose father and/or mother cannot take care of them, are being taken care of with love

It was 3 months ago that Eto arrived at our orphanage. A cheerful kid from East Nusa Tenggara. According to his documents, he is in the 3rd grade of the Elementary school. Unfortunately, he still can not read nor write. As well as a lot of other things that he still has to learn from the other orphans.  But about one thing he is very certain:"Tante Nel .... Later.... 35 years from now, if you are an old woman, I'll replace you and will be the boss here!" he said in all seriousness. What can I do besides hug this little boy who without noticing my gray hair or my wrinkles gives me the reassurance that I should not worry too much about the future of this work of Pa van der Steur 😍

Anti corruption games at the orphanage by SPAK. We are grateful to SPAK (Saya Perempuan Anti Korupsi) who teaches
the children to walk the right path in their future life.

And the profit of the pre-sale WIC bazaar, hosted by Mrs. Jacqueline Swartbol, (Spouse of the Dutch ambassador to Indonesia) goes to....the Yayasan Pa van der Steur and the Werkgroep 72. Thank you so much Jacqueline, for your kindness to us.
