New stove and pots delivered!

2012 September 4

Can you spot the difference below?

Well in case you can’t, the stove on the left was 20 years old, 4 of the 6 burners didn’t function and had to be disconnected due to gas leaks and was just an all-round dangerous appliance to have around the almost 100 children of the orphanage. With the help of donations we were able to replace it with a new stove and a whole set of pots and pans to replace the old blackened ones that were bent out of shape, broken or had handles missing thereby making them extremely dangerous.

As you can see from the photos above, there was a lot of interest in the installation of the new stove. This new stove means the kitchen can now operate with all 6 burners. The old stove only had 2 functioning burners making it very difficult to provide meals for the almost 100 children of Westfalia Orphanage. It also means a level of safety the old stove with its leaks couldn’t provide.


The pictures above are some of the new pots and pans that were purchased to replace the old, broken or dangerous ones. As always, a big thank you to those that donated. Like this new stove project, or the clean water project which provided clean, bacteria-free water for the first time in the 22 years of Westfalia Orphanage’s existence, the repairing of the dozens of broken windows at the orphanage, ongoing English classes, new dance classes, or the regular food and supplies provided to the rural poor like the kids of Westfalia,¬†we have many projects waiting to happen and just need the financial support to make them happen. If you are able to help, please send a donation. And remember, 100% of donations go toward the projects. Nobody receives any kind of salary. This was my goal is creating sonrisas, to provide a fair, easy way to get help from you to the people that need it the most, like the kids of the Huerta Village school in rural Peru shown in the photo below which was the very first project for sonrisasenperu . No salaries, no company cars, no hotels and conferences. Just feet on the ground. So rest assured your money is working hard.

If you aren’t financially able to help please spread the word and tell your friends and family about Share this post on your social media or forward the email. Thank you for your support and helping to make a difference in the lives of others less fortunate than ourselves. Scott Jeppesen
