The 34  old aged people at  Manakaman  Old Aged people's home  have been living  happily till now. The 7.9 magnitude quake on Saturday   April 25 with its epicenter at Gorkha did not do any harm  to them.  It could not  do anything   to their small huts and prayer hall.    But they   felt the sever termer and were afraid and also  shouted for help. But nothing happened to them.  

After  the  termer of the earth  they   have been very sad to  hear about the death of  too many people and  destruction of lots of  properties  around Kathmandu valley.

They  have been praying to   God to provide strength  to the bereaved families and relatives  to bear the repairable loss and also for the departed soul  rest in peace in heaven.

The people have been receiving support in cash from us from time to time. With  the money they  have been   purchasing  there extremely necessary things and have been living there.

We are very grateful to you for  your great support  to us till now. We    will have to do  a lot  to achieve our fund raising goal.   For this work we need your more support.  We hope you will help   us   more by sharing our project among your network, families  and friend.

Thank  you

Last three months   the elderly people at Manakamana  lost   one of their members. She passed  awya at the age of 85.  They spent almost one month praying for the departed soul rest in peace in heaven. Now there 34 people leaving there. We also   pray that her departed   soul will rest in peace in heaven.

 The rest  of  people have been spending their time happily.  They have been receiving support from us from time to time.

Since they prefer to receive support in cash   we    have been distributing our support in cash.  With the money they have been able to buy their extremely necessary things like cooking oil, ghee, vegetables, and other necessary clothes.

Last January 15   our organization staff celebrated the Maghe Sankranti festival having yam  with the elderly people.   It was very cold that day. They woke up early in the morning had a bath in the river and then   together we had hot yam and celebrated it. It was much fun. 

The elderly people spend most of their time praying to God in the prayer Hall. They pray to god  for peace a and prosperity  among  all the people.  

 Still we have to do a lot    to achieve our fund raising goal.  For   this we need your   support and cooperation.

We would like to request to share our fund raising program among your network, family and friends and to achieve our fund raising goal.

Thank you very much  for all your support  till now.

Warm regards

Elderly people had a good as well as bad time during the   last three months.  They celebrated two biggest festivals Dashan and Deepawali.  During Dashain festivals their nearest relatives came to meet them and   have  Tika and Jamara  and blessing from  them.

During Deepawali they lit candle and   worshipped Laxmi  the  Goddess of wealth. They prayed to Almighty God for peace and prosperity for all.

Two week ago they lost one of their old friends. She passed away at the age of 92. Now a days they have been praying for her departed rest in peace in heaven. We would like   to express our deep sympathy and grief    to all the bereaved families and relatives and pray    to God for her departed soul rest in peace in Heaven. 

The elderly people spend most of their time praying to God in the prayer Hall.  Recently they have received a small radio from us. They enjoy listening to   different radio programs.

Now winter is approaching. They need warm clothes to wear to keep they warm. We would like to request to share  our fund raising program among  your network, family and friends and to achieve our fund raising goal.

Thank you very much  for all your support  till now.

Warm regards
