“We had such a heartwarming experience during our time at Rainbow Children Home. The staff and children were so friendly and made us feel part of their happy family. We helped the children with their daily routines, learning English and had fun singing and playing games. It has been an experience we will never forget and we only wish we could have stayed longer.”
