what a strange New life we are leaving, i'm always really happy to give you some news but this time i don't have really good news and fun things to share :(
first of all let's speak Covid19, the good news here is we are back to a normal life, in comparison of other countries we are safe and only few cases are around, we provided Mask to all and we as the other countries ensure distenciation and all rules to avoid contamination and we drastically limit our outdoor activities, but even if the contamination is low we have huge economic impact due to a low tourist amount, many families are on high difficulties and we are trying to help them to maintain a normal life by giving food, clothes and stuff to help families to overcome these difficults times.
you'll find some pics with the kids and also some families.
in addition to this hard period of Covid, we are currently facing to some huge challenges with the weather, this year we had already 8 typhoons, the last one was very strong and most of the area are flooded, i attached a nice pic with the kid but the blind face of this is that we had many houses damaged, we just passed 7 days wihtout electricity and we are awaiting another Super Typhoon for tomorrow... we stay in a secure place so let's hope all will be ok.
sorry to not share this time many fun activities with kids smile but we are sure that we'll overcome this and we'll be back with a better time and news soon, we hope that all of you are safe and please take care of you and your families.
it's time to provide you an update on this particular time/period of Covid
as many of people we was confined at the orphanage and we did our best to busy the kids and propose activities like gardening, sport, drawing, meditation, at home school exercise, and cook courses.
i'm so sorry to not be able to provide you the usual great activities that we do with the kids but for this time their security to stay home is the most important, we hope that all our reader & donators are well and safe, we again thank you for your support and wish you all a nice summer... please take care of you and stay safe !

As every quarter we enjoyed outside activities with the kids so please find below some of them.
This time we went in a forest to learn about the trees, it was a great moment for our kids, they run, jump everywhere

During a weekend we went do camping close to a loch, the kids was happy to sleep in the nature and swim, it was a great experience for them.

time run fast, Christmas is coming so i take this opportunity to share some news from our protected kids
during the last 2 months we continue to take care of our kids and we did many activities,
one of the main activity this time was to train all on first aid gesture & security, we organize few sessions to ensure that all our kids are trained and have that knowledge as learning, it was fun and kids was impressed with fire :) they was really happy and we spend great time all together, i'm sure that this will help them.
following that main activity we organize pottery activity, it was so funny to see the kids put the hand in he clay and try to build something, we built a lot of souvenir of that day and they was really happy of what they built :)
i added some other pics where we did gardening and also temple visit, as you can see we keep the kids busy with activity and taking care of each
