Caring for the homeless of Ulaanbaatar!

Most Kind and Generous Donors,

Please rejoice in the fact that your most kind generous support has made it possible for us to continue our activities of caring and serving the homeless of Ulaanbaatar, now into the twelfth year since first opening its doors in 2003.

During the cold six months of winter the soup kitchen averages around 80 people per day and the cost of utilities are at its highest. The six months of winter is financially the most expensive period. Fortunately, for all us living in Ulaanbaatar this winter 2014/2015 has been a mild winter compared to the years before. But even now, in the beginning of March 2015 we are still in the double digit minus degrees.

As a soup kitchen it is an ongoing expense requiring constant financial sustenance. As the economic state in Mongolia is in dire straits much of the funding for the soup kitchen relies on small individual donations.

For the beneficiaries, the soup kitchen is a haven of warmth and kindness for their one hot meal of the day. For most of them it would be impossible to survive without the safety net of the soup kitchen. Since the soup kitchen is so very vital for their survival, the beneficiaries of the soup kitchen guard and regard the soup kitchen as their personal turf and protect it with animal like territorial instinct against homeless people new to the area. As organizers, we constantly have to talk them out of such attitude and behavior against other homeless people new to our soup kitchen.

Such is the way of life here at the Soup Kitchen!

Thanking you all always and with love and prayers,

Tsenla
