DEEPAVALI and monsoon

Last month the children celebrated Deepavali, the Festival of Lights.
They enjoyed a special meal and plenty of treats, and in the evening they played with fire crackers and had lots of fun.
After a delayed start, the monsoon finally came to Tamil Nadu. It has been raining very heavily for the last few days and many people lost their belonging, crops and even some lives where lost.
For the first time the children have been able to sleep in a dry floor during the rainy season, since the new home is in the second and third floors of a building. In the past years, the water would float the old orphanage for days.
Being able to move the orphanage to this current location has impacted the children's lives in so many positive ways, the boys and I thank you for your kind donations and send you Love and Light!
