Sad news of a robbery

June 21, 2011

Sadly the home of one of our women was robbed.  Subhadra lost her clothes, cooking pots and gas stove.  She has nothing left.  Please do pray for her; we are doing our best to help.

Christmas Gifts

This Christmas WWR gave all the women we support a shawl.  Here are some of the women wearing theirs.

 We have also recently bought our two newest ladies a cooking stove and cupboard each.

49 Actions!

January 29, 2009

Last week the trustees of WWR met together in the stunning Devon town of Lynton for 24 hours.  As a result of the meeting they have a combined total of 49 actions to achieve and will be very busy for the next while!

Some of the main points you might be interested in are:

Marilyn will be taking over organising pashmina orders – her e-mail address is pashmina@wwr-nepal.org.

Renee will (hopefully) be visiting Nepal during February and March and will be assessing each of the women we support and ensuring they have a basic standard of living.  She will be checking to see that they at least own the following items:

Bed

Salt & Rice

Jacket

Blanket

Large Water Container

Hat

Pillow

Stool

Gloves

Metal Crockery inc Beaker

Cupboard/Food Store

School Uniform for children

Saucepan/Stir fry pot

Shoes

Shawl

Pressure Cooker

Socks

Stove & Gas

Serving Spoon

Thermals

 

If you sponsor one of the women and would like to know what their needs are and what we will be buying for them, then please let us know.

Our income has crossed the £5,000/annum threshold and consequently we will be fully registering with the Charity Commission (at the moment we are registered with HMRC only for tax purposes).

Once Renee returns from Nepal we will be putting together a DVD to demonstrate the work we do and the plight of the women we support – we will let you know when it is completed so you can see it.

If you’d like to know what the other 45 action points are then get in contact and we’d be happy to send you a copy of the minutes…..!
