Yes everyone…between all of you, we have reached our target of £2000!
Eeeeek…this is so exciting people, I can’t believe it!! Absolutely incredible!! I am so humbled to know that you all believed in this project, from day one I have had nothing but support from everyone….
…and now, because of all you wonderful people, my friends in Nepal, Arjun, Sita, Akash and Ambir are all going to have a new family home. One that isn’t made of tin, that doesn’t leak when it rains, and doesn’t have mice and rats running around the ground whilst they sleep at night.
This family have had more than their fair share of tragedy thrown at them in just a short couple of years. Now we are able to offer them a new home to be a family in, to create new memories in. Words fail me, I am beyond happy!
I cannot thank you enough.
So what happens now….
Myself and the architect (my friend Chris) have been in regular contact. Due to weather conditions in the mountains we have decided that the best time to go out and start this would be after their winter. Chris will be heading out to their village first to look at the old destroyed house, and to plan out the logistics of the build. This will be around February time. Depending on the accessibility, the build will either begin there and then, or it will begin a short while after. The rains usually start around June, so the hope is, of course, to have the build completed within plenty of time before they start.
So for now, guys and girls, that’s it. I’ve had a few people come to me asking about helping out with the build. I’m super excited about that, and I will be in contact once we have confirmed dates. Also, if there is anyone else out there who feels they would like to get involved, or even would just like to come and visit the village, then please do let me know. You will be absolutely more than welcomed.
From the bottom of my heart, and from Sita and the boys – THANK YOU! You have collectively made such a difference to this entire family. I can’t wait until the next installment and we’ve got this build off the ground 🙂
