Using Few Resources for Utmost (Bunk Beds for Myanmar)

Steve* and April* stretch what few resources they have as far as they can go. Steve is not afraid to work hard, either. Recently, he purchased some steel and lumber and he and the kids set to work in making their own bunk beds. They cut the steel, welded up the bed frames,

laid lumber across to form the “box spring,” sizing it up for length and anchoring it down.

The bunk beds were then put together and set up.

The little ones can sleep several in a row side-by-side.

They are so thrilled to be up off the floor and to have their very first beds!
