Every day the food is freshly prepared by three people. The team goes to the hospital twice a month to be checked for the Corona Virus. “If we feel we are at risk, we check more often.” explains Madan Poudeyal in charge of Rainbow Volunteer Club and therefore the program.
With your support, we have provided children in three slums of Bhaktapur with a hot meal, water, masks and a delicious dessert. Sometimes there is a sweet treat or fruit. 🙂
Also families in need were supported with food, water and masks. A mother who gave birth to a baby two days ago was supported. She is 25 years old and gave birth to her third child in the slum shelter. “When we visited her, we found that she does not have enough warm clothes, blankets and food for the baby. We supported her with blankets, mats, food and clothes. In addition, we were also able to support a pregnant woman.”
In the slum of Lokanthali, a temporary learning center was set up and a staff member was hired to take care of the sanitation, hygiene and education of the children. However, this program is not supported by us, except for the notebooks that were printed with our help.
On 12/14/2020 our 14 day support will expire. We hope to collect enough funds to support another two weeks because it’s more than a hot meal for children and families. It is reaching out, building trust and giving hope.
