FOR one Townsville couple, their dream has just grown.
After creating miracles for children in Z a mbi a l a s t y e a r , Dalwyn and Trudy Webster are about to open their second orphanage in the southern African nation.
The OZ Kids Intern a t i o n a l f o u n d e r s opened their first orphanage on January 23 last year, with a renovated four-bedroom home providing a roof over the heads of up to 12 children.
The new facility will have t wo birt hing clinics and the capacity to care for up to 50 children.
T h e T o w n s v i l l e - based charity will also open a vocational t r ai ning centre i n Zambia, with Pimlico St a t e High Sc hool students already donating tool kits to help children there learn trades.
P i m l i c o t e a c h e r Craig Timbs said it h a d b e e n a n e y e - opening experience.
‘‘ Nearly every stude nt ’ s j a w d r o p p e d when we compared s t a t i s t i c s f o r Australia and Zambia, like population and life expectancy,’’ he said.
