It was a busy day today....in the morning one of our donors arrived with lots of towels and clothing for all the camp members. We had a both a morning and afternoon sessions handing out towels and a large bag of clothing to each of the 18 tent leaders. Later, we were visited by representative from the UN. In terms of a camp set-up, they were surprised that their assistance was not required at a IDP (internally displaced persons). Kudos to the Dwarika's team for all their efforts!
Since it was a Saturday (the day of rest) and the children don't have school, we always like to schedule an activity for the children. In the afternoon, a dance instructor from Shanti Sewa Griha led an afternoon dance program for many of the children. About 30 of the kids participated in the dancing learning a traditional Nepalese dance.
Lastly, one of our volunteers who has been with us for the last three weeks was leaving. It was a sad farewell for Wendy....many of the camp members surprised her with kada (a traditional scarf used for blessings), a handmade flower malla and several of the children presented her with drawings. We are sad to see her go!
