The new academic year started for us after the summer break.
The summer was very severe with the temperatures rising to almost 45 Celsius and when the rains came in the last week of June we heaved a sigh of relief!
In India the rains are special. They come after scorching heat and bring cool showers. We love to run out to play in the rain and get thoroughly wet!
But first of all the news about the tenth class students who passed High school in first class! Fourteen of them joined Junior College. So this year there are 35 Heal Children who are studying different courses in the local colleges.
We had a lovely surprise when Dr. Sathya Prasad the founder of Heal UK, Carl Brodie, the chairman and Matthew, one of the Directors visited us in June. We spent two delightful days with them.
They are organizing a tour Cycle India which is a unique opportunity to cycle 220 miles from Hyderabad to Guntur to raise funds to build schools for poor children, from 2nd January to 11 January
We are eagerly waiting to receive 25 of these brave cyclists from UK who promised to spend at least three days with us!
We are sending you some of the news clips covering their visit
An Old Age Home was built by Dr. Manga Devi, Secretary to Heal India with the concept that the young and the old living together find solace in each other’s company.
Dr. Sathya Prasad, Carl Brodie and Mathew inaugurated the Old Age Home.
A medical camp was conducted when Heal UK Directors were visiting Heal village.
We are signing off for the present.
We will have even more exciting things to talk about in the next news letter since a number of volunteers from UK are visiting us at various times the next six months!
