Dear Friends of
Horses for Orphans


Today, Richard and I are off to Brazil until the beginning of August. We are excited to see our boys Douglas and Valdemir and our base leader, Darren Parker, who has been taking care of them since the beginning of April. He has done a fabulous job, supporting the boys on their personal journey as well as helping them with school and taking care of the horses and together they have lived through much and overcome much!

Darren will return to Canada 2 days after our arrival and we are looking for someone else to take his position either long-term or from end of July until mid October. If you are interested in coming either for a short-term or long-term stay with Horses for Orphans on our beautiful base near Anapolis, please read the mission opportunity below and contact us. We look forward to hearing from you!
 
Much love,
Ingela & Richard
