The first project for The Bark Foundation was to build a new purpose built unit for
the babies of the orphanage with living accommodation for Sister Grace their carer.
A kitchen and new laundry is also part of the new building.
The original cost of the building in 2007 was £20,000. Since then the low exchange
rate combined with increased material costs, use of approved higher specification
materials and an enlargement of the building means the final cost was £45,000.
David and Joy Bark visited the Orphanage in November 2010 to open the building and
also to hand it over to the management of HOTPEC
The New Baby Unit at the HOTPEC Orphanage in Cameroon which was opened and handed over in November 2010 Photographs of the progress of the building from start to finish can be found on the next page.
A Celebration service to mark the opening of the Baby Unit was held for the Foundation’s supporters at Birstall Methodist Church on 16th January 2010 To view photographs and videos of the service click on the following link http://www.youtube.com/user/chashilton1
