Yesterday I took a trip to Mongolia’s only government run nursing home with the IWAM group. It is a State Home for the Elderly about 80 grueling kms from UB. The facility holds about 110 residents with no family and nowhere to go yet are seemingly happy and interactive. We enjoyed touring the facility and making some new pillows for the residents.
The drive took around 3 hours as no marked roads so lots of bumps but beautiful.
The trees were beautiful.
They grow potatoes to earn money, so we took a walk to see.
Lots of potatoes.
The residents were so happy to see us.
We were entertained by the residents singing Mongolian songs to us.
We helped stuff pillows for the residents to use.
We stuffed them with scraps of materials, and were able to put 50 together.
The rooms were all very nice with a huge dining room.
It was a wonderful day, but tired with spending 6 hours driving back and forth.
