On the first day of purchasing, Dawit and Yared first stopped at the shop of Mr. Habite who explained that the completion of the 10 beds they requested would take approximately 20 days, but after the need was explained, Mr. Habite agreed to complete the order within 14 days. Because the bunk beds would be customized, three of the boys who would receive the beds later went to the shop to discuss measurements. Mr. Habite’s shop also provided sleeping supplies such as mattresses, blankets, and pillows for purchase to complete the bed sets for the 10 children.
The procurement of items took an entire week, resulting in the purchasing of many necessities including: firewood to cook, floor mats, kitchen tools, bags of food (tea, rice, flour, etc.), cooking oil, a dual stove, desks, and a bookshelf for the Dream Makers Center, among other items.
