It has been a really difficult time for many people in Nepal, and especially those in the Terai region where our children's home is based. Luckily, all our boys and staff are safe and healthy and quite enjoying time off school.
Due to the fact the our 'uncle Duki' who is normally looking after the garden and the grounds is not a live in member of staff, he has not been able to come to our children's home for the past 3 months or so. The risk of infection in local villages is pretty high due to people not observing social distancing so our boys decided to look after the garden themselves. The results are great and they are really enjoying their organic veggies, and running competitions as to who can grow more.
Because of the coronavirus and many very strict restrictions we were not able to bring our new chickens to the home - hopefully in the next month or two it will be possible. The boys keep asking about them!
The summer in Nepal has properly started and unfortunately that means a very hot weather and monsoon season again. A huge amount of heavy rain is not always the best for our garden but we're managing. The roads are flooded and very very messy so that makes brining supplies very difficult but at least the boys don't need to go anywhere now.
Hopefully we will have more updates when the time for our next report comes. We just have to be patient.
