During the Mentoring Project we hosted a few international youth volunteer teams on the Habitat for Humanity construction site and we took them to interact with the children at the orphanage.
The volunteers brought clothing and books for the orphanage. The children were so excited to have visitors on a school night!
They ate sweets and learned words in other languages while teaching the volunteers Romanian words. It was very exciting for them to hear foreigners trying to speak their language. After getting to know each other, the children took the volunteers out to play in the snow.
For the volunteer team from Saudi Arabia, this was the first time they had seen snow. The children could not believe this and were gearing up for a snow ball fight. Of course the children won!
They played and rolled around in the snow with their interesting new friends and then had warm tea.
