Thank you to everyone who has donated last fall to help me fund OCRC. Thanks to your generous donations I have been able to fund OCRC since December 1, 2015. Amanda - you are the greatest cousin in the entire world! How can I begin thank you enough for all the hard work you've done setting up this blog for me. You are such a beautiful talented person! Thank you form the bottom of my heart. 

For those of you who don't know, I've been donating funds to OCRC of $250 USD a month, while another sponsor, David Hann from Australia, has donated the other $250/mo. David was the previous full time donor but is now retiring and he is unable to continue. This pays for 37 kids to get a good education with 2 new uniforms a year each, all food, their housing, supplies, clothes etc. I have done much research while in Nepal last summer and know for a fact this orphanage is only surviving off of our donations, no other donors, no other bank accounts. Since my return from Nepal I've set up a separate account for this fundraising. 100% of donations go from my GoFundMe.com then I wire it through Western Union where Gyanandra, the founder of this orphanage, picks it up in Bhaktapur Nepal once a month. It's crazy how big of an impact a small amount of American money can have on so many lives in Nepal. I've been able to experience this first hand by being fortunate enough to discover this wonderful place through volunteering with Helping Hands Hospital. Please help me support these kids with any donations of any amount.

If anyone is ever interested in visiting OCRC, outside of Kathmandu, please contact me anytime at Lis159@yahoo.com.

Thank you for your kindness!

Now, he sent only half amount  for November. Depawali is the second biggest festival of Nepal.

Thank you everyone for your help and support!  Amanda you are amazing for setting up this blog! I love you!  So everyone knows gofundme is not funding me. It will be going towards the millions of low income people in Nepal that would not be able to afford medical care if it wasn't for helping hands hospital and to OCRC. I am and will be making sure 100%  of donations will be going to non profit organizations where they need it most. Many donations made to big organizations and especially government does not make it to the right people.  After working in Nepal for the past month and through networking I have found out first hand how to disperse these funds most effectively.

The hospital I've been working at needs specific equipment and supplies. Also, right now we are in the process of opening up a much needed clinic outside town (possibly volunteers in future can come work here)        The Orphan Children Rescue Centre OCRC is home to 32 happy healthy kids and awaiting more after earthquake after legal paperwork is complete.  It takes $400 a month to supply food, good education, etc. I have all legal non profit documents,  donations are transparent and highly regulated by government.  (gov gets absolutely no money) their current sponser from Australia is retiring in September and they won't have enough funds after that.   Lastly, if a miracle happens  with funds I can put some towards the nursing school I spoke at that was cracked in the first earthquake,  many smart girls excited to get their BSN have to do classes at another building now, so we'll see.

Another sector of this organization is building houses.  For $250 USD they can build a bamboo with concrete on outside house,  good for hot,  cold,  elements and earthquakes.  85 have been built,  350 to go!

Bottom line is that a little goes a long way out here and a lot of good can be done. Please contact me with questions 913-710-9623.  Lisa911harper@gmail.com

A documentary is being made about helping hands now too.  Hopefully this can be the start of many more volunteers to come in the future through helping hands to beautiful Nepal!  Thank you so much to everyone who can help!  This will truly make a difference.
