January 31, 2011 UPDATE

Hi everyone,

I wanted to give you all an update on the Solar hot water project. After much delay and lots of hard work from Teacher and Greg they finally got the company we purchased the heater from to come back and finish the installation. On behalf of everyone at the orphanage I've been asked to tell you all how happy they are with the system and to thank you. The matrons are singing the praises of the system for how clean the children's clothes are coming as well as how clean the kids are getting. Thank you all so much for your help with this project, for many I know it is hard to visualize the difference you made in the lives of these children but having hot water will help with many of the daily chores that typically require propane or firewood as well as help control many of the skin disease problems that can occur. I have attached pictures of the system and some of it being built and used. We were also able to install several outdoor water hoses and plumb the kitchen, two showers, and a hot water sink outside for all the many chores they use water for. Thank you all for the help and support with this project, please give me a call or shoot me an email if you would like to hear more about the Orphanage and how things are going.
