We have a full house!

Recently we had 5 new boys joining in our children's home. We are very pleased to say that all have settled nicely now. One of our boys required very intensive counselling due to the trauma but he is much better now. All the boys to go to school, and Subash is continuing his university. 

We had some very tough experiences in the past couple of months whilst trying to help as many children as possible. We came across one lady who was begging in front of a hospital with her 7 children, some very very young. Her husband is in prison so there is noone to look after them. We took some of the children to our Helpline to provide them with shelter, education and care and we were discussing a possibility of assisting the lady with setting up a small tea shop for her so that she can at least afford a room and food for herself and the children. The lady's parents in law found out about it and forced her to refuse any help of this kind despite not being able to assist her themselves - as the family are from a slightly higher caste, it was seen as not suitable for a woman to work outside. So they have been forcing her to beg instead of working. 4 children as still with us so they are safe but the smallest ones, including a baby, are with the mum, sleeping on the street. We are still trying to talk to the family to see what we can do to help but we do come across so many of these culturally different scenarios on a daily basis and sometimes are just not able to help. 

From a bit more positive news, we have a new social worker at the child helpline and she is doing wonderfully well, trying to visit as many children in need as possible and to help quickly and efficiently. Also, the monsoon season should be coming to an end soon - and that means end to our child helpline building flooding that keeps happening all over again this year. 

We will soon be looking to try and set up a library for the children at the helpline so we will update you with the progress of that!

And thank you so much for all the support, the situation in southern Nepal is quite bad at the moment and so many children needing assistance. So we do appreciate everything you have done to help!
