    ... boys ordered pizzas, chicken and chips and Talapia. Most of the volunteers ordered their very first Talapia fish too. There was a band on which the boys also enjoyed to watch.

There are babies placed right in the middle of it all too young to walk but sit there with their hands open in a begging position. That was very hard for me to take. I was so upset I almost got hit by a bodaboda until Vanessa yelled at me to stop. My mind was not on traffic and Judy was in fast mode. I could not help myself and cried. ...
