Chickens and Pineapples!

Orphanage gets new chicken coop

The AD staff recently went on a site visit to one of our orphanages just outside of Kura Buri, and we have great news to report! Thanks to the hard work and donations from AD volunteers, this orphanage was able to begin building a new chicken coop that will allow them to not only generate food for the children, but also provide a source of income.

When we visited, the folks were hard at work getting the coops’ ceiling finished so that the volunteers could get their hands dirty the next day painting the walls. We hear the painting party went great, and that the coop will be finished and housing the chickens in no time!

We are also glad to report that the ducks are doing well, and although the bananas didn’t look like they would be ready anytime soon, the pineapples looked just about ready to be eaten by the children, and maybe even some hungry volunteers after a hard days work!



Comments:
A few weeks ago, I received an e-mail from a reader wondering where my recipe for pininyahang manok (pineapple chicken) had gone. I was a bit flustered at first because I didn't recall removing that entry.
