Samjhana is Recovering at Home

Samjhana came home from the hospital a couple of days ago. She is doing well and it appears that the tumour was benign. Thank goodness for this. She is being well cared for by Kamal, Sema and Aama and baby Milan is very happy to have her back home.

Sewing Project at SBCH

Madhu and Mina in their newly made clothes

These are the latest creations from the sewing group at SBCH. This project continues to be very successful and the children not only love it but it has given them a lot of self esteem. Kamal buys a bolt of fabric at a time and as they improves he buys better quality.

Samjhana Recovering after Surgery

Samjhana, Kamal's wife at SBCH, is recovering in hospital after major surgery yesterday to remove a large tumour from an ovary. Hopefully everything will go well. We have all been very worried about her. Baby Milan is having a hard time without her and is not wanting to feed from a bottle. I will keep you posted as to her progress.

Garage Sale

We have changed the date of the garage sale to June 16th. Monica and I are both away on the weekend of June 2nd so would not be around to sort and pick things up. This gives us more time. If no one is at home when you call please do leave a message.

Our Children in Pokhara

Kamal has just returned from Pokhara where he was registering children and buying their books. He has just sent these photos. I did not realize we had so many children here but it really made me feel good to see them all in these photos so I wish to share them with you.

Address for Correspondence

I have had a lot of requests for an address for sponsors to write to their children. You can send any mail to the following address and it will be delived from there. Just put your envelope with the child's full name on it into another with this address on it. Remember that mail to and from Nepal can be very slow with letters taking up to three weeks to arrive.

Fundraiser - Garage Sale

We will be having our garage sale again this year on June 16th. Any local sponsors who have anything they would like to donate please call me at 746-0249 or 746-8936. We are quite willing to pick anything up that you cannot drop off. Drop off is at 6718 Beaumont Ave. Maple Bay.
Monica has very generously offered her driveway for the sale again. Last year we raised $2000 which was excellent and we were able to do some special projects with this money and also have some as a back up fund which we had never had before.
