All the children have settled in well to their new home. The Allambie Orphanage is a UK registered Charity. OF THE MONEY DONATED TO ALLAMBIE GOES DIRECTLY TO THE CHILDREN. There are no admin fees and Suzanne’s work is voluntary. The orphanage is a home where the children are loved, helped, encouraged and cared for in a strong family environment. Allambie is located in a safe area and close to the children’s schools so they don’t have far to travel on their bicycles. The surrounding area has a strong Vietnamese community and the children have made friends with the local children.
There is also a church nearby as some of the children enjoy going to church. Allambie now has a full-time cook called Ms Bich who comes to the house every day and cooks Breafast, lunch and dinner for the children. Ms Bich goes to the market every morning ensuring that the children have fresh wholesome food on a daily basis. As the children all go to school at various times. Dinnertime is the main meal of the day where we all eat together as a family. Allambie also has a live-in full time housekeeper, who we call Auntie. Because of the children’s non-existent schooling in the past, many are below the level of schooling they should be for their ages.
Therefore Allambie has provided extra lesson for all the children including maths, English, chemistry and physics. The extra lessons are all carried out at home in the schoolroom and the children have all built good relationships with their teachers. Now that the children are all getting the extra lessons they so desperately needed and are now in full time education, they have steadily improved their grades over the last year. The children’s performance after their first set of exams in April 2010 averaged around 4 or 5 out of 10.
