Parcels To Zambia
Sending batches of parcels to the falconer Home continues to present major challenges. The complicated and lengthy customs process has resulted in us managing to send fewer batches of parcels each year. We are looking for ways to improve the process, including exploring the possibilities of a new shipper to handle our parcels.
Hymns for Zambia - The DVD
Following the success of the Hymns for Zambia Facebook event in May, a new DVD has been produced. The DVD contains eighteen hymns which were played on the day, with slideshows of photographs and video clips of various aspects of the Home. Please get in touch if you would like a copy. There is no charge for the DVD, but donations towards our work are always gratefully received.

The roof of the main house is desperately in need of replacement, but in order to do this, alternative accommodation must first be provided for the children who sleep in there. Simon and his team are therefore working to renovate other buildings and bring them to a standard which not only meets the needs of the children, but also satisfies the requirements of the Zambian Social Services. This means that accommodation must include toilets and showers, proper beds etc, and must also meet all fire regulations.
The main focus of these renovations at the moment is a girls’ dormitory which is being constructed from the ruins of the old church. A toilet/shower block is being added to the end of the building, and bedrooms will be built within the walls of the church itself.
Sadly, one of the longest-serving carers at the Home, Mama Eunice, passed away on 25th May, from a serious chest infection. Eunice was the senior carer for the youngest children, and had devoted her life to the Falconer Home. We thank God for her life of selfless service to the children. She will be greatly missed by all in Kabulamema.
