Singapore sponsors visit their Sponsored Child

Earlier this month sponsors, Daniel and Ronnie from Singapore, visited their sponsored child, Bilisha.
They only started sponsoring Bilisha last April but have been exchanging letters and were very anxious to meet her and her family.  Mann met them at the airport and took them to the family and her school.  Daniel and Ronnie enjoyed their visit with Bilisha and took her and her family out for dinner.  They also visited our office and Sima's small children's home.  Sima is Mann's wife.

Daniel tells me that they very much enjoyed the visit and sent these photos.  Thank you for being such great sponsors to Bilisha.

Marathon Fundraiser

I am training for the Salmon River Marathon in Idaho to raise funds for NEF.  The training is tough but has gone well but the fundraising has been slow.  Hopefully in the next month we can get some sponsors for this event.  If you would like to contribute please email me at

Our bulb fundraiser raised $885.50.  Thanks to all who sold and bought bulbs.  I think this was a good result and that we should try it again next year.

The money from both these fundraisers will go towards our administration costs which have to be met if we are to keep the charity alive.
