Sadly tragedy and unexpected loss are all too common for children in Bekoji. The Stand by Me Bekoji Children’s Village was built to care for children just like Samrawit, orphaned, abandoned and in need of a loving family. We welcomed her into our girls’ home after the death of her father and she immediately fitted in.
The Yangon family gathered outside around tables in the shade. A tasty selection of food was prepared, including rice which is a Burmese staple. It was a great time eating and celebrating together and it was a good opportunity for the family to bond around a dinner table.
Our Nepal Manager Fay coordinates our work in Nepal from our UK office. This year she took a group of supporters to visit our Hetauda project to meet their sponsored children. She shares with us a summary of her trip and just a few highlights of her time with our kids:
There are no hospitals in Guacamayal, Colombia where we care for over 180 kids at our care centre. Stand by Me invites doctors and dentists to visit the care centre and run clinics for our children and often their relatives too. Recently a team of nine doctors and two dentists visited the care centre.
Stand by... almost there...
