Having Fun At Shalom

Our visit to Shalom was a great excuse to give the boys some new sporting and games equipment.  We gave them a carrom board table, some footballs, a volleyball and net, badminton racquets, quoits, snakes and ladders, dominos and 2 chess sets.  This meant our afternoons were filled with sports and games of every kind.  We taught them touch footy which they picked up very quickly and and really enjoyed playing.  The widows even joined in some of the games along with a few of the boys' friends from the village.  We've since heard that the children in the village are very interested in learning this new game.
