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.


The Big Give Challenge – Double your donation to Women Without Roofs

December 2, 2014

Dear All,

We know that at this time there are lots of demands on your time and money but we hope you won’t mind us asking you to consider Women Without Roofs as well. We are delighted to let you know that we have been accepted for the Big Give Challenge this year.  This means that if you donate to us at 10am (GMT) on either Thursday, Friday or Saturday this week (4th, 5th or 6th December) you donations to us will be doubled!

All you need to do is visit this website

http://new.thebiggive.org.uk/project/wwr

as soon after 10am to be in with the best chance of having your donation doubled.  The matching funds will run out each day so please be quick!

Funds donated will go towards Grace Women’s Home that continues to run smoothly and helps women in the most vulnerable of circumstances.  Our prayer has always been that the home will be a place where women who have faced ostracism and violence will instead experience love, joy, peace, patience and kindness.

With funding for the home secured this will allow WWR to focus efforts and resources on new projects.  There is a desperate lack of mental health provision in Nepal and we have been partnering with an organisation called Koshish since the start of the year to help fill this gap.  Our hope is that in 2015 we can increase our involvement with them and recruit a new staff member to focus on this issue.

There is another new project in the pipeline that we will use to give work experience and training to those of our ladies that wish to work in the tourism industry – a vital and growing component of Nepal’s economy.  So, if you were thinking of visiting Nepal, watch this space, and maybe this will be your chance to go!

Thank you for reading this far – we hope you can donate to us online this Thursday, Friday or Saturday, please put a reminder in your diary now for 10am!  Even the smallest amount helps.

We wish you a very joyful advent.

With our thanks,

Anna, Renee, Marilyn, Jan & Nic

Degree student needs help

August 12, 2014

Can anyone help a student called Kalyani who has done exceedingly well by qualifying for a degree in bio-medical engineering; she has already started the course.
Unfortunately her father, who was a primary school teacher, has rapidly become mentally ill, lost his job and is now unable to fund her education. She needs over £3,000 if she is to continue her course, which we know is a huge amount to ask for, but if someone could help either by donating or committing to fundraising over the next couple of years it would be absolutely wonderful. Please contact anna@wwr-Nepal.org if you are able to help.
She is studying at The College of Biomedical Engineering & Applied Sciences, Bishalnagar, Kathmandu, Nepal
