    dr barnardo first made a childrens home because of jim jarvis a boy on the street whos friend died and his ma but mostly dr barnardo had a very big heart . he also let jim jarvis and his friends stay in his house (well its better then letting them live on the street)dr barnardo was training to be a doctor but started making homes for sick kids at first he made homes for boys but after jim told him his story about his life on the street and his sisters he made on for girls
