Giving Joy and Warmth in Nepal this Christmas

We threw a Christmas party at the Grace Orphanage

Nothing says Christmas like seeing the joy on kids’ faces as they receive gifts.

So to get you in the mood as the Holiday Season continues we thought we’d send you a “photo report” from our recent Christmas party at the Grace Foundation orphanage in Kirtipur Nepal.

The orphanage is home to 50 kids who have all been through a lot in their short lives. They’ve lost their parents and their homes so we wanted to bring them a little joy this Christmas by throwing them a party.

We provided snacks, fun games and also gifts for all the kids. The weather in Nepal is cold over the winter so we were delighted to be able to provide each of the kids with a lovely warm sleeping bag to curl up in. Thanks so much for making this day possible.

Our work at the orphanage will continue next year and if you’d like to help the kids further then December is a great time to get started. There’s match funding available for any new recurring donations set up during the month. On the US GlobalGiving site your initial donation will receive a 100% match after four months (a limit of $200 applies).  On the UK site the terms are the same but the matching limit is £100.

Recurring donations are particularly amazing, as they allow us to plan ahead more effectively. But we would also be very grateful for any further one time gifts you might be able to make as the Holiday season continues.

We wish you a very Merry Christmas and we hope you enjoy the rest of the photos below.
