And, thanks for all your support in 2021
A New Year begins.
It's New Year’s Eve, I’m sure I’m not alone in wondering just what 2022 will be like.
Before we look ahead, a brief thank-you from Raja in Nepal summarises what we’ve done together in 2021, and that’s well worth celebrating.
“We at IGWR Nepal are lucky having you and your full support even this hard time. With your help we were able achieve our goals and we were able to help others in this difficult time.
With your help in 2021 we were able to complete following things:
We fed and housed 26 kids and staff.
We supported several families with food and financial help.
We are providing educational support to 55 kids
We successfully started a ‘special needs’ foster family home.
We looked after 8 single mothers.
We painted our houses.
We bought new beddings, utensils, etc.”
We were able to achieve so much in 2021, especially considering the challenges of Covid in Nepal, and so we look ahead to 2022 with Hope, Optimism and empowered by the reality that together, even in difficult times, we can make a difference.
2022, what will be different?
The changing of years reminds us that the world is always changing;
and perhaps we are slowly learning from the challenges we face.
“As global health leaders have repeated ad nauseum during the pandemic, no-one is safe until everyone is safe. Helping vaccinate the world is therefore a matter of national self-interest. Yet less than 3 per cent of people in low-income countries have to date received at least one Covid-19 vaccine dose.”
We are learning that “In Giving We Receive”; in other words, our own well being very much depends on our sharing what we have to ensure the well-being of others.
Our supporters have already discovered this reality, and as we look to 2022, we might well expect our generosity to ‘infect’ others and so increase the possibility of bringing light and life to those who live in the shadows of poverty.
We wish you all a Happy New Year, a year in which we all need a BOOST.
As we continue into the challenges of an unknown tomorrow, we can bring hope to others by sharing the good fortune we celebrate today.
