Betesda orphanage was founded by Pastor Zebua following the December 2004 tsunami and subsequent earthquake in Jan 2005.
Before MMW got involved the children were sleeping between 2 bedrooms, a communal lounge, and a rented house. In 2014 the orphanage caught fire and the main building was lost. 6 months later they began rebuilding. Sadly they ran out of funds to complete the project.
Merlin’s Magic Wand stepped in and funded the build to completion and also remodelled the areas into something truly magical. In total Merlin’s Magic Wand has renovated and transformed 11 bedrooms, 2 living areas, and a play room.
Craig Connor, GM of MT Singapore, says:
"To be able to change these kids’ quality of life is a really special feeling and something that I feel extremely privileged to have been part of."
