For the first time, we are doing a joint project in the two homes we support in Nepal: The 25 children in the NWCSS orphanage and the 55 children in the DRC Nepal need a new, warm winter coat soon. Winter is coming and already it is getting colder.
We also buy 15 additional winter coats. These go to the children in the DHC New Life shelter for children with physical disabilities in Kathmandu. This home was started last year by the previous manager of the DRC. All 15 children who live with him moved from the DRC.
In both homes, much time is spent outside. It needs little explanation that a good, warm winter coat for the kids is no luxury but a necessity. A good quality winter coat in Nepal costs on average 10 euro/13,80 US/8,75 Pound Sterling each. With the help of many (former) volunteers, family, and friends, we hope to fulfill this wish as soon as possible.
