HORRINGER Court Middle School, in Bury, has donated a laptop computer to a home for orphaned and abandoned children in the Philippines.

Mary Rendon, 32, from Bury St Edmunds, has lived in the South East Asian country for the past nine years working on projects helping street children.

On Friday, she visited the school to collect a laptop for the House of Joshua – a project set up to house orphaned and abandoned children. Pupils at the Bury school will use the computer to make new friends at the childrens home more than 6,000 miles away.

Mary, who lives in the Philippines with her husband Tamil, 36, and four children – twin boys Michael and Joshua, seven, and daughters Ellianah, three, and Kaelah, six months, said: “The House of Joshua is a home for children funded by donations from people all over the world and has taken four years to come to fruition.

“There are thousands of street children in every city in the country. We are currently raising the last of the money to open it up.”
