Clean Clothes Bring a Chill to Inner Mongolia

Wearing damp clothes during an Inner Mongolian winter is far from comfortable for the orphans at ChiFeng Orphanage, but to wear clean clothes means to put them on a little wet. This orphanage of over 50 children with special needs has no clothes dryer. Also the washer is far too small for all the laundry, so the staff must wash most of the children’s clothing by hand. It is then hung to partially dry in any available out of the way space in the orphanage. It’s a time consuming task and all too often a chilling process for the children. Help us purchase the proper laundry equipment for these 50 Chinese orphans. Large washer-dryer combo unit will cost about $10,000 with transportation expenses.
