Keeping Things Safe at Our Lady's House

I went to visit Sisters Chinedum and Mary Joseph at our Home for Mothers in West London. I was going there as part of our ongoing commitment to support Mothers. Some of the women who live there are some of our most needy Mothers. If it were not for your support, these women would have nowhere to live.

There were a few things to do. Some of the children are getting a little bit bigger and have started to crawl around. Up until now most of the babies that have lived there have been small enough that they would need to be carried everywhere. It has now become necessary to make some adjustments. We had already done a few things, including installing a new door closer for the kitchen. One of the Mothers needed a cot put together for her baby and some stair gates needed to be put up, one at the top and bottom of the stairs. The stair gates proved to be more difficult than you would imagine. The house is Victorian and the stairway is wider than average and has an ornamental handrail.

All in all it is quite a satisfactory feeling to have completed it all. I then had the treat of an African style rice and fish dish cooked by Sr Mary Joseph.
