The Anjana Fund on Global Giving has closed, as the project is completely funded thanks to your generosity and compassion. With your help, we have paid for Anjana's funeral expenses, for hospital care and rehabilitation for the injured children and counseling for all.

Anjana was cremated at Pashupatinath, the Kathmandu temple that is the holiest Hindu site in Nepal. It was a beautiful ceremony, with her Ama Ghar family, friends and relatives celebrating her sweetness by giving her offerings of flowers and prayers. Although this was a very difficult moment for these children who have already had so many difficult moments in their lives, it did help us all to accept Anjana's death and become even closer to each other. The photo in this report shows Anjana in happier days (center of photo in white), jumping rope with her brother and sisters and Ama Ghar visitors.

The injured children received excellent care at the hospital, and all came home much more quickly than any of the doctors had anticipated. All are receiving rehabilitative care now, and in particular Bina will need extensive dental work and Sunita is receiving treatment for dizzy spells, but in general they are recovering better than expected.

The landslide and its aftermath have been so traumatic for the children that they are all receiving counseling. In addition, our staff, who have been working at an exhausting pace nonstop since last year's earthquakes and border blockade, are receiving counseling as well. We have also sent them all to Sotai, a Japanese bodywork facility in Kathmandu, for relaxation massage and care for their aches and pains.

We couldn't have done any of this without you. You are truly our family, and we are truly grateful.
