We have good news to announce: since 27.04.2020 we are on the “list of fines” for the next 2 years. During this time we should have received at least one allocation of money by then. However, there is also the possibility of an extension before expiry. A big thank you to the district court Tiergarten! Approximately 100 to 120 million euros are donated to charitable organizations.
We received a positive message from the German Embassy in Kathmandu that we like to share with you. It is a story about 3.000 PCR-Test Kits, made in Germany, that arrived in Nepal thanks to a French cargo repatriation flight. Together we are stronger. More details can be found here:

Madan met 2 boysContinue reading “Living in the Streets / 10 years old”

Today we want to touch a topic of delicate nature. A topic which needs to be addressed. If we like it or not, still these days in some places of Nepal girls and women when having their periods are treated as “dirty“, “impure“ and “contaminating“!??
