A temporary setback

Greetings to our supporters and friends.  Unfortunately we have no happy news to share with you about work to restore disabled children to a normal life, since we did not receive any new donations to pay for the therapies and equipment needed.  In addition, GlobalGiving has run into a problem with its disbursement of funds in India, and has had to suspend payment to all its Indian partners until they can resolve the issue with the government.  Because this has impacted many of our programs, we have little extra cash or staff time to spare.

Nonetheless, we have been able to continue, on a limited basis, our survey to identify other disabled children in need of help, and to provide information and assistance for applying for available government services.  Although it may be a few months before we are able to receive disbursement of any new donations, giving now is still important, since it will let the children we are hoping to help, and their families, know that they have not been forgotten.  Just $50 will buy a hearing aid for 10-year-old Leena that will allow her to do well in school and make new friends, and $100 will buy a wheelchair for Visuki, who has cerebal palsy and now must be carried everywhere.  We are hopeful that whatever we receive in new donations will allow us to receive a microloan for purchase of the needed equipment, which we will be able to repay when the Global Giving disbursement is received.

We appreciate so much your past support, and look forward to being able to send more positive news in our next report.

Warmly,
