First of all we would like to extend our heartiest greetings and best wishes to you and your family on the occasion of coming Merry Christmas and happy new year 2014.
During the last three months all the 37 old age people at Manakamana Old Age Home remained well. Last October they celebrated Dashain and Deepawali, their greatest festivals happily. A big fair also took place there. They prayed to god and ddanced and enjoyed the festival.
We are very much pleased to inform you that we have recently received Rs.37700.00 as donation for the 37 elderly people. On the auspicious occasion of coming Christmas day December 25, we are planning to distribute food materials like rice, lentil, salt etc to the 37 old age people leaving there. They are verry much excited to hear the very good news. I will write to you the detail report of the food distribution program with lots of pictures in my next report.
We are very much grateful you for your kind favor to us. We also hope you will remember us and our organization and help us to achieve our fund raising goal.
Minor changes took place at Manakamana Old Age Home Khandbari in Sankhuwasabha district of Eastern Nepal during the last three months. Since no water comes in the tap in the evening, the old age people had to go to the Arun river to bring water. It used to be difficult for the very old and weak people to carry water from the river. The people have received a 500 –liter- black water tank to collect and store water for the evening when there is no water in the tap. The tank has been provided by our Makalu Arun Social Trek (MAST) company. From on, they do not have to go to the tap to bring water. They are very happy to find it.
A social worker Mr. Indra Kumar Shrestha from Khandbari has shown interest to construct a prayer hall and as well as another temple in the Makakamana premises. The construction work will be commenced soon and will completed within one year.The last three months, it rained heavily. Very few people came to worship at the temple. So the old age people who are poor and helpless, had to face difficulty to solve their hand to mouth problem.Since it was summer it was not very difficult for them to spend the night. Now winter is approaching they will need some warm clothes to wear. They will also need some warm bed clothes like warm blankets.
Next month they are going to celebrate Dashain and Deepawali their greatest festival. We would like to request you all to share this fund raising project among your networks, families and friends.
