December Update

Children's Park Nellore India

We had unexpected heavy rains twice, experiencing cold and cold winds after 48 years of Andhra Pradesh State weather report!

I was busy as usual in my job. Last month children celebrated Diwali festival by lighting candles, fire crackers etc., with lot of fun and joy. All the children studying well and getting very good marks in school. Both the tutors are regularly coming to Little Hearts to teach all the subjects and helping children's home work. At present one Manager and two sub staff working at little hearts.

Last month, local people donated pillows and blankets to all the children of little hearts. Last month we have paid Rs.3,500 electricity bill for 3years! Electricity Board shown mercy and charged us minimum for all the 3 years, a new electricity consumption meter was also fixed by the electricity department. For Kiran we have paid Rs.3000/- as college fee. Recently we bought a new iron cupboard to keep records, children things for Rs.3,850/-.  For Christmas and New Year clothing, the Right Now Foundation, U.K. donated money. Rs.800/- to each child to buy two pairs of new clothing for Christmas and New Year.  November was an expensive month! Total expenditure was Rs.49,000/-. Due to heavy cold and cold winds few children fallen sick and now they are doing well. For weekends we take all the children to Children's Park, Sea and Police Parade grounds to play.

Orwald who is HIV+ is also doing very well and recently we have received his medical records from Mumbai.  Yesterday, I sent a letter to the local Government ART center for transfer and treatment. Today he went to the ART for doctor checkup. He is on ART. Special nutritious food like milk, egg, green leaves providing to him.

Please give our love to all friends for their love and kindness.
