GDS Newsletter 6 2017 is now available to download and will give you an overview of the recent fundraising in the UK and the projects funded in Gorkha.
In 2015 after the earthquakes which caused devastation to Gorkha District, not only did we manage to raise £10,000 which is fantastic, but we also spent it on emergency help. Our committee in Gorkha made specific requests to such as buying galvanize sheets for roofing makeshift schoolrooms which are still in use two years later. Solar lamps,school jumpers for young children, health kits, blankets for the damaged hospital.
In 2016 over £5,000 was raised and fully utliised in Gorkha, funding children sponsorship, hygiene programmes and wheelchairs for the hospital.

As a small charity working for over 25 years with the community in Gorkha we are working with our team in Gorkha so they can decide how best to help people stage by stage. As we send money directly to them then they will inform us of costs and how money is spent so helping as many people as we can in a small way. We have worked hard to fund-raise over the last few years and will continue to do so ensuring every penny raised goes to the projects – no wages or expenses claimed.
With more funds, we can do a little bit more for those who had little who now have nothing.
