Dear Swedish Parents,

Greetings to you all. All the children are doing great and find in good health.
The climatic conditions in the State of Andhra pradesh are changing now. Actually, this is the rainy season,but  we find no rains for the past two months. Every year we will have minimum rain fall during the months of July and August,but this year we have not even had one single rain during these two months.It hardly drisseled for few hours on certain days.
The weather used to be very cool and windy during this season at the Childhome, Because we have big water storage tank in hundreds of acres right behind the childhome meant for the people for the purpose of  drinking and agriculture. This year the tank is empty because there is no water inflow and the atmosphere is very dry and sunny.

Now the weather report is showing a ray of hope that the rains will occur for these three days due to the depression in the bay of Bengal.we all are waiting for good rains.
Children in the Childhome are growing in good health and enjoying the nutritious food they are being given by you. They love chicken curry and eggs and the day that they get rice they will come to the dining room very early.I hope and pray that the rice they get from the government will be good. We give rice twice in a week,and that is their day. They are also enjoying the extra breakfast given to them. The Press people who visited the childhome expressed that this childhome is far better than before and they appreciated the fecilities that children have and they even ate with them.

One of the girl named sunny rani is awarded with national merit scholarship which covers her educational expenses until she completes her 10th grade. Now she is studying 7th grade in the Childhome.This year we have good number of admissions in the childhome. One of the newly admidtted boy is a dumb boy, but miraculaously he started speaking after joining in the Childhome and his parents expressed that he never spoke a word when he is at home and he only communicated with the sign language. Now this boy started speaking little and communicating with others. His name is Sk.Saida belongs to Muslim community and he is verymuch intrested in painting.

Children are asking for the washing machines which helps them to wash their clothes especially to wash their blankets and bedsheets. It has become difficult for them to ringe and drain the wet clothes and dry them. Children use to do this for many years. When Mr.Krupa rao was alive he use to help them in washing. Since after his death the government has not appointed any in his place because our State of Andhrapradesh has been bifurcated and now the government is struggling to fill the vacancies.

We are anxiously waiting for Mr.Sam and his team from Sweden and we hope to see some of the parents would join with them this year to expereince and witness the Childhome with their own eyes.

We saw in the news that Sweden is in the first European country giving sheter to the refuges from all over the European,middle east,and south american countries and  we felt very proud of you,since we are experiencing your love and warmth for all these years through your great philanthropic works at the childhome in India.
Though you are a small country and even small in number you have a Big heart that responds to the needs of others, which brings cheer and happiness in many lives. We respect you and honour your valuble works and proud to say that this childhome is experiencing the great compassion and love of Swedish folks.

Thankyou verymuch for your support and help and hope to see this mighty work will be continued in future to bring smile in many faces and gives great hope to many lives.

With love,
Alice and Children
Childhome, Challagundla

Dear Swedish Parents,

Greetings to you all. Hope this letter of mine will find you all in good health and cheer. We really had a terrible summer this year. The disaster managment officials said that the death toll due to the intense heat wave sweeped Andhra pradesh crossed more than 1000 figure.
Temparature had been hoverd around 46 degrees celsius. The state authorities directed to open camps for providing drinking water as a measure of protection against the severe heat condition.

The state authorities appealed the public to avoid sun from 11 am to 4-30pm to get protected from the UV rays.

We kept the children in the dormitories from morining 11 am to evening 5 pm to protect them from the heat. We have hanged the cotton wet curtains in the dormitories and continuouslly keep wetting them to protect from the heat. Since the flooring is made with stones it produced more heat.

Children enjoyed playing indoor games and and only we allowed them to come outside during the evening. during the night time we wet the ground with water and all  the children slept outside on their cots.

All the children expressed their gratitude for the Swedish parents for giving extra breakfast for them. They really enjoying the food. One of the girl named Nagalakshmi expressed that even if they live at their home they will not get this quality of good and even their own parents will not afford to give them with this nutrituious food.
This summer we all collected some stones from the groud to make nice and we still have to collect more from the ground. we really are enjoying the taar road paved for the children now the tri-cycles can go fast on this road to reach the water tank.
Some family from the village came to us and fed with delicius dinner because their son got admission in the medical college and he is going to become a medical doctor. To celebrate their joy they came to the school and shared  a meal with the


Now the weather is getting better and cooler. We are expecting rains this month and we hope we get them in time.

Thankyou once again for all that you are doing to us. Thankyou verymuch for your support,care and concern. We look forward to hear about you more. The help that you are extending to our childhome is not small it is building a great future and giving HOPE to the most neglected children. We love you all and praying for you.

With Love,
Alice and Children,
