The day began with lots of laughter and smiles from the children who got to spend the night at the hotel. We took them swimming in the pool, which was another first for all of them.
Today is the day of rest in Nepal, so the children enjoyed a day off from school today. The day started with a death ceremony honoring those that passed away during the first earthquake. This special puja (ceremony) was performed by our priest in the prayer tent as today marked the 49th day after the first earthquake.
In the afternoon, a large refrigerator donated by the US Embassy was delivered and installed into the kitchen tent. Camp Hope is lucky to have so many supporters during this difficult time. A refrigerator will help maintain the food for the camp. There was a music and singing class in the afternoon, followed by a massive camp cleanup.
