At last

At last, the time has come. I’m going to Nepal, and this time I am not going alone; one of our board members will come along to see with his own eyes, for and with whom 4 Smiling Faces has been working since 2008.

So after more than 3 years, it will happen: Nepal, we are coming. We are very excited about it. Originally, the plan was to go at the end of 2019, but due to circumstances that became spring of 2020. Then corona came, and the world turned upside down. Like everyone else, we fell back on WhatsApp and FaceTime to keep in touch with our children and friends in Nepal. That went well, but nothing beats being able to look each other in the eye.

That will happen this spring. We will visit the children and talk to them. How have they fared in the past two corona years? How is their health? Are their parents (if they have any) back at work? Have they fallen far behind in school? Can they find their feet again now that the measures in Nepal are reversed? What are their concerns, and what can we do to address them?

Time will tell. We are so looking forward to meeting everyone again.
