We had hoped to show the opening of the new Hospital in time for the Nepali New Year. However there has been a delay in the local government funding which should be soon rectified now that some of Government officers have now visited the site. We have been able to send a further £6,000 towards the project and the local community church building. Many thanks for all those who continue to support this worth while cause in such difficult times.
We await the list of equipment From Dr Shiva but as this a 50 bedded hospital and their current building is only 15 beds a good guess is that beds and mattresses will be on the list. We will keep you posted.
Some bright and encouraging photos have arrived . The interior is taking shape well .
We are continuing to fund raise again this year with a more modest goal of £30.000. We have been so encouraged and over whelmed with all that has been achieved this past year with the generosity of so many. A total of £35.600 was sent to Sahodar Nepal for the church /community building ,Hospital and salaries.
This has been an amazing year despite all the challenges Covid 19 has brought .The generosity of so many along with the local Nepali government has resulted in the fabric of the hospital being completed and at the curent time the interior is now progressing well.
What a transformation from last year .We are looking forward to 2021 and to see this hospital completed . We will keep you posted .
.We are delighted to say that the craft fare at the Royal William Yard went very well. We raised over £400 over the weekend. Friday was very stormy but fortunately for us the sun came out on the Saturday and Sunday. The number of visitors this year was well below previous years due to the on going COVID restrictions, but many friends came to support us. We must thank the Ocean café for allowing us to have our display outside their premises and being such a good source of hot tea. Thanks also to all those who donated such a variety of art work to go along side the knitted trees. Of course a very big thank you to Martin Storey for giving us permission to use his delightful knitting pattern which was the main draw for this event . We have a few items left and hope to do a small Christmas event later- we will keep you posted.
As the winter approaches and this virus is still making its mark we have heard of two cases at the hospital in Garambeshi. We are thankful to God both are mild but please continue to remember this community in your prayers.
