WMC: September 2017
The coffee morning, cake stall and bring and buy book sale at Church on Saturday 23rd September was to help buy books for children in Nepal who had been affected by the the earthquake.
Heather Wells wanted to thank everyone for their support for the coffee morning and book stall, which raised a total of £360.70.
Prem, Heather's contact in Nepal has links to a number of the projects KarmaFlights gets involved with.
KarmaFlights is a Nepal-based, non-profit organization. It believes strongly in each child's immutable right, to a safe and secure learning environment. In a land famous for its towering peaks and tumultuous rivers, the bright young minds of Nepal are its greatest natural resource. Education, is the key to unlocking that vast potential and solving Nepal's poverty problem.They believe in looking after the children so that they can study effectively.
In some villages they provide hot meals and others are supported with warm clothes apart from providing an education.
Prem says that he will manage to buy more than 100 books for the children as a result of our coffee morning and has just sent some photos of a library in one of the schools.
