In the past few months DEPDC’s Lunch Program has faced a few difficulties. HDS doesn’t have enough funds to provide lunch for the students every day so HDS sometimes provides milk or snacks for them. Our children have to bring their own lunch. As some of our children live far from school they have to get up early and sometimes their parents don’t have time to cook for them. Sometimes they come to school without a lunch box. What they eat for their lunch is a snack and sadly, this doesn’t completely fill their stomachs.
To provide food for our children, after harvesting the rice from the fields in December, we turned it into a garden for growing vegetables; we planted mustard, kale, radish, cucumber, pumpkin, and long bean. Some of the vegetables have already been harvested such as mustard, kale, and radish and these vegetables have been used for the lunch program. But while we are waiting for the cucumber, pumpkin, and long bean to grow the dry season is coming and we face water problems. Currently, we don’t have enough water for watering the plants. The only thing we can do is hope the well will provide more water for us.
Despite all this we continue to have hope and are grateful for all donors both past and present. All HDS’ students, teachers, staff, and volunteers would like to thank all the faithful donors, who have donated and supported us via global giving and private donations.
