A Christmas celebration was held at Grace Women’s home and shawls were distributed as presents to the women.
Yesterday Anna was interviewed during the Dayspring church christmas carol service in Chippenham about how Women Without Roofs was first established – find out more on the ‘About Us’ page.
It was a great opportunity to talk about how the initial generosity of one missionary in Nepal has led to many women being supported and blessed by the funds raised by Women Without Roofs here in England. We have expanded steadily and now run two sewing courses that teach the women how to support themselves through home sewing businesses.
The church also presented her with a generous donation that will pay for the blankets that we are handing out to all the women we support this christmas.
We’d be more than happy to talk to you about our work; please contact Anna on firstname.lastname@example.org
Women Without Roofs is pleased to announce that it will be giving a Christmas present to each of the women we support in Nepal. The women will receive a new warm blanket to help them through the cold days and nights in Kathmandu, where homes have no heating.
This has been made possible by a generous donation from Dayspring church, Wiltshire (www.dayspring.org.uk).
Photos of the women with their blankets will follow soon!
The Bible Society is featuring Women Without Roofs in its Nepal Christmas resource pack.
This year will be the first time that Nepalis will be legally allowed to celebrate Christmas. In the last twelve months the nation has become a federal democratic republic and now offers equal recognition to all the country’s religions.
To mark this incredible occasion the Bible Society is encouraging people in England to help celebrate with the Nepalis and has produced a ‘starter kit’ to help do this. You can order your copy at www.biblesociety.org.uk/nepal.
Information about ordering pashminas from WWR and supporting our work is included in the pack.
