Today was an amazing day for the children. A young woman named Rebu arrived at the camp from a Moving Mountain School Bags, an organization she put together with her family and friends. What started with just hard boiled eggs and tea for earthquake survivors, turned into a passion for the betterment of Nepalese youth who lost everything. Over 5,000 schools were destroyed on the outskirts of Kathmandu Valley, and she made it her mission to put together school bags with pens, paper, sharpeners, sandals and whistles in case of emergency. Friends and family of Rebu gave her money and now she travels around with her brother and friends giving school bags to children. The smiles on their faces incredible!
In the afternoon, five nurses arrived at the camp to be prepped by the volunteer camp doctor. They will take turns volunteering one day a week for a total of five days. Shortly thereafter, a volunteer arrived with lots of kids clothing from her friends in Bali. Wow...what mayhem, although it was great fun. Together, they handed out lots of clothing to the kids ranging in age from about three years to 15 years old, both boys and girls.
