Diwali designs by our children
Wishing you a very happy Diwali from your Snehalaya family. We are all so happy that the current COVID situation here in Ahmendagar has improved enough that we can enjoy a return to some of the traditional celebrations of the Festival of Light.
That said, our Rehab Center, which is home to over 250 children and women, is still in lockdown and we are entertaining our children with a range of activities, gifts, new clothes, entertainment which will culminate in a party this Sunday. Earlier this week, we were also able to celebrate Diwali with some of our slum children as we reopened their refurbished center in one of our cities most crowded slums. We have also distributed gifts to women and children in our other projects, including a sari distribution to our female sex workers.
None of this would be possible without your support and we are sincerely grateful to you for ensuring we can give our women and children their own family Diwali celebrations.
