A fire a month ago in a Tajik school for disabled children hasn't quite been forgotten yet.

Stories like these drive me nuts. If my baby house, which is well-equipped and -staffed, had a fire in the night, I don't expect that all the children would make it. My babies have 1 women for 12 babies at night. I don't know if the older children even have someone in the room with them.

I chatted with a woman last night who visited an invalid orphanage in Jalalabad recently. They need help there. I know there are plenty of orphanages and boarding schools in Kyrgyzstan that need help. I'm volunteering at the place that probably needs the least help. But I can't get to any other place on a regular basis.
