Dear Swedish Parents,

Greetings to you all. Thankyou very much for your continuos support and care. All the children in the childhome are doing great and experiencing the hotter summer this year compared to the one in 2016.
We are all praying for you. We heard in the news that there was a terrorist attack in Sweden few days back. We hope that you all are safe and feel sorry for the brutal attack on the innocent people. We are continuosly praying for you all and for your country since Sweden is a caring country for the refugees and it extends it’s warm love and support in different ways through out the world through its charity. We love and respect the people of Sweden for their Philanthropic spirit and deeds.
The people of the Andhrapradesh need to brace themselves for a sweltering summer this year as the weather reports say that the temperature will record to above normal in the coming months. The temperature could be high as 47 Celsius on some days in April and few degrees more in the month of May. There will be more number of days with heat wave conditions this time around. It will be similar to that last year. Last year also temperature recorded were on few degree above normal. It will be similar sinario this year as well.
The schools already started long sessions( from morning 7 am to 1 pm) . But the AP government introduced a new policy that the teachers from the other schools will be observing the tuition hours during this afternoon hour until the summer holidays is declared. It personally do not agree with this since it puts lot of pressure on the students.
Children in the childhome celebrated the Telugu new year this month. We ate a traditional chutney called” Ugadi pacchadi” made with all tastes mixed to gather jaggery for sweet, salt, green chilli for hot,neem leaves for bitter, and mango for sour. This chutney resembles that life should me mixed with all tastes. Children enjoyed the variety food prepared for them on the festival day.
Children are we interested in learning the computer education and majority of the girls are showing much interest I. Learning sewing skills. This summer we planning for special sewing claases for the grown up boys and girls.
Thankyou once again for supporting us and extending your help from overseas. Thankyou verymuch for embracing us with your love and care and making it possible through Samuel and parents association.
WE LOVE YOU ALL.

With love,
Alice and Children,
Childhome, Challagundla
