When ICC found out that the orphanage we support in India did not have a refridgerator, we knew we had to do something. Much of the staff’s time was spent going to the market every day to buy milk and vegetables that would spoil quickly due to the heat. Now, they only travel once a week to the market and are able to preserve vegetables, milk, fruits, medicine, bread, butter, cheese, jam and eggs.
The orphanage director said that they children had never used a fridge before and did not understand how it worked, nor did they know how ice was made. Once the process was explained they were very excited. They children are making already making plans to freeze milk and sugar in ice cube trays for a treat during the hot weather. In an email to ICC the director said, “Thank you once again ICC for making the children very happy.”
