Earlier this month, the Trinity student group Kid Companions had their most recent visit the Bread of Life Orphanage and the St. Benedict Children's Home to hold the tri-annual carnival for the residents of both facilities.
The Bread of Life Orphanage is a home for Vincentian orphans with HIV and AIDS. The St. Benedict Children's Home serves local orphans with a wide array of special needs. Kid Companions strives to bring additional light and consistency into the residents' lives, through both adaptive play at regular carnivals and through material donations, as well as labor at the sites themselves. This particular carnival represented the culmination of several ongoing projects to upgrade the games and prizes for the events, as well as some extra donation efforts. Read on for the full story and for a short gallery of the day's fun.
