Kyrgyzstan "NIZ Orphanage" Call for Help

Kyrgyzstan Orphanage
Trish Pascoe
Boise, Idaho

It seems everyone has been affected in some way by the status of our economy.  We recently had a reminder of how lucky we really are here in Boise, Idaho.  A friend of ours, Rich Robinson, is stationed in the service in Kyrgyzstan.  He is volunteering with the Manas Off-Base Outreach Society while deployed [with the Army] in Kyrgyzstan. Their mission is to help local schools, orphanages, and elderly foundations in Kyrgyzstan.   As part of their mission they are helping a local orphanage, the NIZ Orphanage.  The NIZ Orphanage houses orphaned children who range in age from infants to teenagers.  They recently just took in another 50 children ranging in age from 6 – 10 years of age.  These kids literally arrived with the clothes on their back.  They have not clothes, no shoes, no toys, etc.   Rich sent an email home to family and friends requesting help and letting us know that these kids were in dire need of winter clothes. 


We asked Mrs. Myer’s sixth grade class at Trailwind Elementary if they would like to help some kids halfway across the world that were quite a bit less fortunate than them.  And, help they did!  Mrs. Myer’s class enlisted the help of their “first grade buddies” from Mrs. Sly’s class and not only donated boxes of winter clothes, but the students took it a step further and brought in toys that might add a little pleasure to another child’s day.  We are happy to report that the students at Trailwind donated eight VERY large boxes of clothes and toys ranging in all ages for these orphaned children.   Stability Networks picked up the boxes and shipped them to Kyrgyzstan.  We are honored to help the orphanage.  The generous donations will protect the children from the upcoming winter and hopefully add some cheer.  It was great to witness a group of students put so much thought and care into this project. 


 Thank you to Trailwind Elementary’s Mrs. Myer’s sixth grade class and Mrs. Sly’s first grade class for reminding us that the glass is half full and that we can all make a difference! We would like to introduce you to those kids…..
