Alice brev till faddrarna

Dear Swedish Parents

Now it is raining in our state Andhra pradesh. It is really fun watching the rainwater flowing from the mountains near by into the school campus and ultimately join in the small creek near by. We thank the Lord for protecting all of us in this terrible summer. It is good to see the rain. Children love to play with the hand made paper boats sailing in the rainy water, but I am little afraid if I allow them to play in the rain it will cause cold,cough and fever. Childhood never comes, so I allow them to play in the rain only for a little while because they need some sweet memories. Afterall we all living in a busy world where we dont find time to enjoy the nature.

All the children enjoyed the food in the summer especially the icecream,,soft drinks and mangoes. One of the boy in the childhome commented that he has seen Icecream and cool drinks only in the Television and in the shops.He has only seen the pictures of them and never tasted how it is like.I praise God for the great hearts of the Swedish parents for making their dreams come true.

We are rising some chicken in the childhome. One of the chicken became hen and it started laying eggs.But the problem is that this hen is laying eggs in the garden some where and it has become diffult to search the eggs. So, we are praying and planing to build a small shed for them.

We have given some extra fertilizers to the growing plants. Now they look nice and healty. Some of the plants we planted last year died because of the heavy summer. So, this year we would like to replace them with new ones.We hope that this year we will get suffient rain fall and the small canal next to the Childhome will be filled with full of water, so that Children can swim. They really miss swimming.

We have caste system in India. Who ever make their livelihood with their work that is their caste. For example if some one collects your clothes wash and iron them and brings back home to you is a washerman caste. It is fun to watch that the washer men will collect the clothes in the village from the families and brings them to the canal near by and washes them and takes them home. Like this we have every caste for every work. Example,cobblers,goldsmith,Carpenters,Plumbers,Builders,Barbers,Butchers,Shepperds, and so on.

The building of the chidhome is leaking because of the continuos rain. They were build 40 years ago and they are only build with lime stone not with the concrete. So, there are many leakages in the main building. We are praying that the Lord will strengthen our hands to do the neccessary repairs to aviod the furthur damage. The other major problem was during the night we are facing severe power problem because of the heavy wind. For the past 15 days we have only power for three nights. It was cool and windy during the night. We lit candles in our rooms.

Once again dear parents thank you for your love and support. It is so wonderful to have some one  overseas thousands of miles away from us,from different culture, different colour, giving their valuble time and money for the unknown foreigners and sharing their great love to these most deprived ones in NEED.

Thank you for making theirs come to true and helping us in this great work.

There may be many rich Indians in India and abroad makes more money than you and you may get a question why we should we support this since Sweden has also so many homeless people. My answer is. It is not the money that makes the difference it is the HEART that responds to the need and of course money is also a big factor. Thank you very much for supporting us. We all will be praying for you all and hope to see some of you visiting us.

With Love,

Alice and Children from the Childhome

 

Ekonomisk rapport från Samuel 2013-07-18

Jag vill personligen tacka alla faddrar, ni är fantastiska som ställer upp och bidrar med pengar för att kunna ge barnen stöd, möjlighet att gå i skolan och mat som de annars inte har möjligheter att kunna få. Som ni redan vet är er hjälp ovärderlig eftersom verksamheten var i ett stort behov av stöd för att kunna överleva.Fadderverksamheten har nu pågått i cirka 15 månader.

Just nu på barnhemmet finns det 69 ungdomar från åldern 6 till 16 år, eftersom det är ett handikappsbarnhem är det svårt att slussa ut de äldre ungdomarna p.g.a. deras handikapp. Barnhemmet är deras trygghet just nu.

Vi skickar just nu varje månad 7300 kr till barnhemmet + 100kr kurtage.

Tot. 7400kr/mån.

När jag skickar pengar till Indien kostar det 50 kr i kurtage avgift varje månad och det är den enda avgift som vi har i Sverige.

Resten av avgifterna står vi i familjen för. T.ex. telefonsamtal till Alice ca 1ggr/vecka.

December 83

Februari 91

Juni 93

Eftersom fadderverksamheten sker på frivillighet, hoppas vi att ni tycker att det är meningsfullt och roligt att få bidra till barnhemmet och ge barnen ett rikare liv. Vi hoppas att ni förstår att ni har full insyn vad pengarna används till, och att vi försöker att hålla regelbunden kontakt med Alice/barnhemsföreståndaren. Fråga gärna om det är något som ni undrar över.

Redovisning fram till 18 juli 2013.

¤ I Mars månad ändrades utbetalningen till barnhemmet, från att skickas från den 15:e till den 15:e nästa månad. Från april månad sker utbetalningen månadsvis från den 1.a till den sista dagen varje månad.

Vår önskan är fortfarande att minst 100 faddrar vill ge 100 kr/mån, (de familjer som vill får självklart betala mer) om ca 3000kr extra varje månad kommer in, då kan pengarna användas till oförutsedda utgifter på barnhemmet eller någonting annat som behövs, behoven är många. Vi har just nu 10 stycken faddrar som bidrar 200 kr/månad och det gör att vi har ett tillskott på drygt 2500 kr varje månad och det är jättebra.

Ibland händer det att det kommer in extra pengar i kontot utan att vi vet var pengarna kommer från men det gör inget eftersom pengarna hamnar i kontot och redovisas som total summa i kontot.

Vi kommer med ett litet brev snart vad pengarna som finns på kontot ska användas till, vi har några förslag från Alice som vi återkommer med inom en snar framtid.

Om ni har vänner eller släkt som skulle vilja vara med i fadderverksamheten, skicka ett mail med namn och telefonnummer, så hör vi av oss till vederbörande.

Rice–———————————————————————————————-Rs 12144
The price of the Rice is rising day by day due to no crops in the past year
because of the low rain fall. Since there is no cultivation for the paddy in Andhrapradesh
for the past year, according to the economic theory when there is short in supply the demand
will be high and the price will atomatically raise the price of the Rice is rising and we did not know at which point it will stop.
Chicken-——————————————————————————————–Rs 8280
The price of the chicken has drasticly raised in the last month. It raised suddenly due to the heavy summer and less production in the poultry it is even Rs 200 per Kg in some cities. I hope that these prices will get down by October 2013

There is no hope that the price of the rice will get down this year. The only hope is that if we can get sufficient rain fall and the price will get little lower and chicken price will come down by the next few  months.
With Love Alice
