Pabitra is our first handicapped child that we have sponsored.  She is five years old and has no arms other than a very short limb with one long finger.  She does everything very aptly with her feet.   She is in nursery class.  Her father left the country a couple of years ago and has not been heard from since so she lives with her mother who tries to make money from odd jobs.  One of our new sponsors from Singapore has kindly sponsored Pabitra and I am looking forward to meeting her in November.

Garage Sale Success

Our annual NEF garage sale last Saturday was a success.  The weather was good, no rain, excellent volunteers, lots of articles for sale and good crowds.  We made $1,650.00 for NEF administration costs which will help to pay our expenses in Nepal in operating our charity.  Although this sale was smaller than previous years it was more manageable and less stressful and so we enjoyed it far more and were not exhausted afterward.  Thank you to all who volunteered and donated to this sale.

Annual Garage Sale

The garage sale this year is being held June 9, 2012 from 9 am to 3 pm at Ray's Furnishings and Antiques  on Duncan Street, next to the Duncan Garage.  This will be a smaller sale than in previous years as it had got too big too manage.  If you have any items to donate please bring to the sale location on Saturday or to my home in Maple Bay beforehand.  Please email me for my address or if you need any items picked up.
We hope to see you at the sale.
