What a fantastic response from all of you.
This appeal seemed to warm the hearts of people as much as it warmed the hundreds of children who received clothing blankets and woolly hats!
Thanks to you we are able to make sure all the children and families who needed these items received them, and hundreds of these items were given.
Although it is still quiet cool at night here in Bihar during the height of the winter in exceptionally bitterly cold weather our health team, the Rescue Junction team and our teachers made sure that your donations were put to use with immediate effect targeting those most in need.
Here is just one example -Our outreach team found a group of children huddling together scantly clothed under a railway bridge. They were brought to Rescue Junction where they were treated for hypothermia. Wrapped around in their warm blankets with their new sweaters and hats, and drinking hot soup we are able to keep them warm and ensure they were no longer suffering.
Out in the villages all the poor children in our schools and in the communities we serve unable to afford warm clothing were provided with them.
On their behalf and hundreds of others , Thank you all
