It does not get better than this !!!!
In 2003 we became friends with Piya, the staff and our daughters at the Metta Centre Nepal.
Piya, the director gave guidance of the highest quality, the staff loved and cared for the little ones, and in return our daughters showed much enthusiasm and endeavour in school.
By the day our flowers grow and blossom.
The congratulations of all in A Ray of Hope is extended to our daughters and the many people at the Metta Centre and around the world who have in anyway assisted our girls on their path to being very beautiful young ladies.
See below the first photograph we received in June, 2003.
From caterpillars to butterflies.

All your daughters are fine. Please fine their group picture and new daughters pictures.

New daughters names are 1. karuna 8 years old, class grade 4 2. Reshma age 10 grade 5.

We have now 15 kids with two new entry. All other kids are in grade 10, 9 and 8 respectively. They were second top students in Nepal. Imagine top students from Nepal that Metta Center produced. Binita, Renu were top level students in Nepal too which they were graduated.

Dear Don ,
Well about my project ,i m telling u that ius about 80 children from a romanian hospital,"Hociota" Hospital , somewhere at the edge of Bucharest .That is a very special hospital where children were forgotten by their parents so they are living there like in an orphanage .We have 11 children between 2-3 years old,9 children of 4 years old,24 children of 5 years old,23 children of 6 years old,11 children of 7 years old and 2 children of 8 years old children .Some of these are ill ,menthally or phisically but some are not .The ones with parents still thinking about them time to time are going to kinder garten or to school and we know that except food,clothes and constant care they also need toys,books ,colouring books,pencils,colours ,paints for painting ,notebooks,and tracksuits and we are trying to get what they need .

We had another project with them for 1 of June when is the International Day of Children and by donations of toys,clothes,sweets we could bring them joy .

So this is what we want to do now .

Thank you for all and kisses!
