bring your children

They decided to start a Home for children in India. Some of these children had Mommys and Daddys but were very very poor. They didn’t even have enough food for one meal a day! They were sometimes very hungry. This made the Mommys and Daddys very sad because they loved their children. They asked Bonniema and Fredpa for help. Bonniema said Bring your children to our Home!!! They will be safe here, they can live here and get clean water and food and clothes AND go to school!!! Many children came to Bonniema and Fredpas Home and some Mommys even came to work at the Home to help care for all the children!!!
