Mercury Bay Co-Operation Parish Support this Appeal

The Little Flower Children's Home in Pedong, India is in need of new flooring, bedding and bathrooms.

Talk to Robin Twemlow if you would like to know more about this worthwhile appeal.

Robin is involved because she has visited and stayed at the home and seen how well the children are doing. The children have come from extremely difficult situations and here they have the opportunity to grow up in a loving stable home.
