A big 'thank-you' to all who contributed and supported the craft and coffee morning on Saturday, in Newchurch Social Club. A fantastic £200 was raised.....

The girls are all well. Gladys has finally recovered from her fall at school, which unfortunately resulted in an abscess which made her very poorly. She has returned to school now with the other girls but is apparently missing all the extra TLC she had when poorly!


The children continue to do well in their studies, with Dolcie showing a real aptitude for maths and science which will be encouraged. They break up for their Christmas vacation on 18th December.


Venus suffered a minor fall on a neighbours wet floor and hurt her knee and shoulder, but is managing.


Unfortunately, there is a real issue regarding water. It is only available for two hours a day, it is truly unimaginable, so all water has to be saved then, but because they are at the top of the building water pressure is very, very low, so needs to be fed into a tank downstairs and pumped up. The whole building have complained, but apparently it is due to all the new builds taking feeds off their supply, please pray this may be sorted as it is causing a lot of stress and much extra work for Venus.

(From Nikki, trustee) I spoke with Venus a few weeks ago and all the girls are well, if not a little cheeky at times! They continue with their education and it amazes me how well they do after their desperate start in life.

March 2015

At our latest Trustees meeting held on 10th March in Stamford we heard from Sue who recently spent some time at Yashua Sanctuary in India. She reports all the girls are well and growing up quickly.

With face to face contact we now have a greater understanding of some of the problems Venus has. To that end we have recently sent a one off donation to prepare the apartment for this years monsoon season.

Our recent donation to help the water situation in the apartment by installing a large holding tank on the roof has made a big difference.
