“Empowerment Through Education” — Friends of Himalayan Children

Distribution of donated goods Dec 2015

What a wonderful week it has been, sports shoes, beanies and clothing have been distributed – for most of the young recipients this was their first pair of shoes. Thank you to Emma Smart, Julie Savage and everyone else who donated the sports goods. The most recent Take On Nepal volunteers group loaded up their backpacks with donated beanies, scarves, ponchos, blankets and teddy bears and set off on foot to isolated villages in the Sindhupalchowk district and distributed these items to villagers who were in desperate need – particularly so as winter is setting in. This was a long walk to villages that Som hasn’t even been to before! Everyone felt thankful to be able to give women with little babies a nice warm blanket, hats and scarves. They are in such need of warm clothing items and hopefully we have made their Winter a little more comfortable after the distribution of the items.


Thank you so much to Roz Pulley (we really wish you could have been here to see this happen), the Lioness Clubs’ of the Cairns region and to Dennis Voak from Cathay Pacific Airways for making this happen, we wish you could’ve seen all of the happy, smiling faces.
