Building work is progressing well on the kitchen and dining hall. The polytank is now on the pillars. Misthy reports that Agartha, the qualified child carer, is making a positive difference for the children. Paul Shewell, a past volunteer, is
visiting the Centre for 2 weeks over Easter; he will be able to give us a first-hand update on the situation, and possibly help Misthy produce his annual reports (financial and narrative) for 2011.

On Easter Monday 9 April Misthy sent a text message:

"Sad news, we had a heavy rainfall with a severe wind and this has been collapsed part of the dining hall building. Between 600 and 700 blocks were affected. Also the poly tank fell and broke. No one was injured."

I await further reports and am thankful that no-one was hurt. Hopefully the damage can be repaired.
