In January I will travel to Nepal in order to volunteer in orphanages in the area of Kathmandu. The organisation I’ll be volunteering for is called VolNepal. Their labour consists of finding and organising resources for different NGO’s which are active throughout Nepal. VolNepal is working completely independently, meaning that they don’t get any donations from public institutions, governments and political or religious associations. This is how they ensure that they are able to help wherever it is necessary no matter of race or religion. Donations are used for medical care, research, outreach, women shelters and in orphanages which help to give street children the prospect of a better future.

If you know me personally you may be aware that for quiet some time now I do feel the urge to be actively involved in such a project. Finally I will be making it happen and soon I’ll be helping some children to get ready for school, prepare their breakfast, play with them, talk to them and over all hopefully be able to show them that their destiny matters to someone. I will also have the occasion, and task, to take photographs of this beautiful experience. The pictures I’ll be taking will then be used to visually support websites, press releases and flyers of VolNepal and the different NGO’s.

The objective of this appeal is to raise donations for VolNepal. Just as in many places as well in Nepal there are too many needs and too little resources. While the list of donations in kind is a long one it will be difficult to pack everything needed into my luggage. Anyway I’ll be attaching a list of the most needed things at the end of this letter. However I hope to collect a fair amount of monetary donations in order to support this project. Remember that every cent will make a difference. You can make your donation directly on the website of VolNepal or you can do it by clicking the donation button at the end of this post. Rest assured that every cent I do collect through my blog will go in its integrity towards VolNepal. In any circumstance I will not use these donations for my own expenses. My flight ticket, accommodation and meals on this trip I will be paying out of my own pocket. All those who are able to get in touch with me personally are of course welcome to make their donation in person. Send me a message if you would like to have some more information on VolNepal, their or my project.

Thank you so much for listening to my words. I wish you a very Merry Christmas.

 

P.S. Even if you are unable to make any donation you can still support this little project by sharing it with your friends.
