Beds for the orphans
This year Dach überm Kopf was able to supply the orphanages with beds and sheets for every single orphin. For almost every orphin this is the first time they are able to sleep in a bed rather than on the moist floor wrapped in blankets. During the monsoon time in Kerala the floor gets very cold during the night and because of high humidity water starts to collect on the ground.
