We are very happy to welcome our newest member of Hope Family Phu Lhamu. She is 2.5 years old. She was born in solukhumbhu , in Everest region, in a family of porter. Her mother gave birth to 2 girls and 3 boys then she died while giving birth to last baby.
Phu Lhamu has 1 elder sister and 3 brothers. Her sister got married in the age of 15 and one (1) brother is adopted by a monastery, 1 brother is working for other people who is only 10 years old while 1 brother about 3.5 years went missing and found dead body in jungle probably attacked by wild animal.
Phu Lhamu is the youngest of all. After the death of her mother, her father married another young girl who is only 19 years old and she already gave birth to her own child. Among all of this Phulhamu was left without much care and attention. Local community members recommended Phulhamu to The Small World at Himalayan Hope Home program for support, while visiting by our team and local police she was found very vulnerable and we rescued 3 weeks ago and all hope girls family are very excited to welcome a cute sister.
