Brickmaking

We came across some Sudanese boys making mud bricks for a new chicken coup in their compound in Kakuma refugee camp this afternoon. It’s hard physical work in the 96 F sun.

They say the bricks will need to dry in the sun for 2 days before they can be used.

These guys are clearly hard-working and resourceful as they try to improve their quality of life as refugees.

My heart is heavy as we meet so many people here who need a country to open their doors and invite them in to our refugee life behind them. As it is, the world is busy closing doors rather than opening them.
