Passing on the shawl

June 30, 2017

Three women have been trained by one of their own cohort to make shawls. An empowering experience for them all.

One of the women that Women Without Roofs supports in Nepal, called Durga, makes beautiful shawls.  She started this work because the women we support have formed a cooperative and make loans to each other.  Her success has prompted three other women to seek to be trained by her and so this week she spent three days of her precious time patiently teaching them how to make shawls.  With just one spinning wheel between them it took time and perseverance.

It is fantastic to see Durga flourish through teaching them, and for the other women they now have a new skill to help them become independent.  Everyone at WWR is delighted.

Urgent prayer request

March 22, 2017

Please pray for this lady, Sarita, who took an overdose on Saturday.  WWR helped to admit her to hospital, where she was regrettably chained to the bed, and we have also sought the help of KOSHISH our mental health partner.  However, her condition is still not stable and she has had to be re-admitted to a different hospital.

Sarita Palpali khadka2

Please pray for wisdom for our hardworking personnel and the medical staff treating her.  Pray that she will be back to full mental and physical health very soon.

Thank you.


Dal Bhat Day

dal-bhat-1

On International Women’s Day, which this year is on Wednesday 8th March, we’d love for you to join us in eating Dal (lentils) and Bhat (rice).  It is the staple food for our ladies and they eat it twice a day at around 11am and 7pm.
We’ll be in touch nearer the day with recipes and ideas.  We hope it will be a good opportunity for you to tell your friends about WWR and if possible to raise some funds by offering to cook Dal Bhat for people you know.
