Dear Friends and Supporters,

May I send our very best compliments of the seasons to you all.

As the cool days and cold winter nights approach us of course the importance of a good hot meal becomes clear. But let Pramilla D., a villager whose family benefits from the programme tell us the benefits she feels in her own words,

I want to say how much we appreciate the hot nutritious meal we receive from People First.“We have very little land, it is difficult for us to grow enough food for our family. I have two young sons and a daughter aged six. There is no electricity in our village, and no doctor either , but the Health Team from People First have started a village health scheme here with a local volunteer health worker,  and have trained the village midwives to help safe deliveries. This has helped my family and other villagers a lot. But I want to say before the meal was provided there was much hunger here, and many malnourished children Due to help of others this is no more, our children are growing well. We also want to help ourselves and People First have started a  village group for loans (micro credit scheme) for village women which I have joined, and although I can afford only 25 rupees a month ( about 50 cents) I hope to get a loan to buy a couple of goats and rear them for milk. Thank you so much. Life is hard here but we know people do care about us and are helping us a lot”

Followers of these reports already know about the very high malnutrition rates in India .This festive season, in the cold weather please help us fill some tummies for the children!

With heartfelt appreciation,

Neelam
