Dear Swedish Parents,

Greetings to you all. Thankyou verymuch for the support you have extended for us for all these past months. Half of the year has finished in this 2017. Days are quickly rolling and only few more months to see our Swedish folks back in the Childhome.
The weather is getting better now and the temperature is now between 33-31 degrees keeping the atmosphere little cool. The monsoons entered in the beginning of this month. It rained for 2 days and did not see any rain so far. Hope we will get sufficient rains this year. If we did not get sufficient rains we have to face big problem in getting our staple food paddy( rice). The prices are rising gradually.
This year we got a good number of admissions. New children are enjoying the Childhome. It is fun watching the children quarreling for the Rolletors they got from Sweden. We gave one to girls and one to boys. We still need more because this year the majority of the new children cannot walk. These Rolletors are very useful for them. Most of the visitors who visit the school are really impressed by these extra facilities children got. One of the new girl went home for two days and came to me with a complaint that she had very difficulty at home with out a Rolletor to go to toilet. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE ROLLETORS.
Children are enjoying the extra nutritious diet they have been provided. Even the government officials are verymuch impressed by the good food and keeping the environmmet clean.
In this aspect I wanted Thank Samuel and Johan for their patience ,constant observation and their valuable advices to maintain this childhome in a disciplined manner. With your support and Sam we will not be able to run this childhome.
We have cleaned the ground and did some earth works making it possible to plant the kitchen garden. Hopefully we will sow the seeds in the end of this month. We leveled the ground and kept it open for sun. We will wait for two more weeks to plan for the pipes and watering points. We will start with veggies and greens first. The ground is full of stones and less soil. So we are separating the stones from the ground now.
We are thinking about the rainwater storage points also.
This is the statement from one boy called ”Jampa Rao”. I asked him why he love the Childhome . He said that at his home town everyone calls him as handicapped ( kuntivaadu in telugu) including his parents and family members. No one call him by his name and he is only known by his disability. But at the childhome every one calls him by his name for which he feels so happy because all his inmates are handicapped and they never feel any discrimination. He said that he enjoys staying in the childhome forever. My heart felt thanks to my biological parents who started this mission and I wanted to thank my beloved Swedish parents, Sam and Johan for your constant guidance,support and love to continue this Mission Journey together giving Hope to these most deserving children.
Once again Thankyou very much for every thing that you been doing for all of us. We love you and looking forward to see you in Dec 2017 or Jan 2018.

With Love,
Alice and children,

Dear Swedish Parents,

Greetings to you all. Thank you verymuch for the tapes for our cots. We are weaving them to our cots now. Thankyou verymuch for supporting Goutamreddy a boy in the childhome having urine control problem by providing diapers to him. That was a great help for him since he has been suffering for years. Thanks is a small word for your help. We cherish all these remarkable support we receive from you through out our life.
We really had severe summer this year. Every year we feel the same that summer is super hot. But this year the temperature went upto 47 degrees to 48. We had really hard time this year to keep the children in safe side. Everyday we poured the water on the flour of boys and girls dormitory to control the heat. We kept the wet curtains inside the dorms to keep the temperature cool. Both didn’t work this year. The moment we make them wet they got dried with in few hours.
Finally we heard that the mansions will hit the state by the 2nd week of June and we hope they get in time. The tree in the compound look healthy and green. This is not the opinion we express, this is a great compliment we got from the department of education in Guntur District.
People suffered for regular and drinking water in Challagundla village but not the childhome.
We have got sufficient water for our daily use and to grow plants. Thanks to Swedish parents association.
We had a visit from Volkswagen people from Bangalore to see the ongoing projects run by the Swedish parents. They really appreciated the marvelous work done by and still continuing by Samuel Tideman,Swedish parents association and Tolvskillingshjalpen in providing better facilities and improved educational skills. Thankyou verymuch for you all for making us known to the other world.
Children are healthy and happy at the childhome. Now they have become our Ambassodors in promoting the childhome and bringing the most deserved children into the childhome.

Thankyou once again for your Love,Care and Support and keeping your trust on us.

With Love,
Alice and Children,
Hope Childhome.
