Ruth’s House is regularly abuzz with the women and children of Yellow Flower Cemetery. While we had not originally intended to keep the house open every day, our friends have insisted and continue to meet us at the door every morning.
Currently, our ministry center director Johanna is working with 25 children regularly to help them make strides in their education. With such overwhelming demand for skilled support at the shelter, we are in the process of finding and hiring staff to assist Johanna and provide more individualized attention for the children in the cemetery.
We are actively working toward the completion of the Cemetery Child Sponsorship Program for the children of Yellow Flower. Stay tuned for more updates as we are getting closer to launching this new way to support children and families we get to serve there.
