Chilaunepani distribution of hygiene kits Feb. 2014

We took Panna Khadgi our water monitor with us to Chilaunepani to two different schools in the mountain villages to deliver hygiene kits to the children and teach them about washing their hands and how to stay healthy.  We taught them a cute song in Nepali about washing their hands. They were so excited. You would have thought it was Christmas. It was a very fun and rewarding day. So thankful we can share our love , knowledge and the church's humanitarian money in such a great way.  I love the children here. They are so innocent and kind and respectful. It was a great day in Nepal!

Water users committee and extra hands we had to carry
the bags of hygiene kits up the mountain. We were grateful
for the help.

We liked her goats too.
2nd school we went to the children greeted us by putting flower
leis around our neck. I think they had spent the morning stringing
all the flowers. They were pretty excited to see us.
I think Mike had 16 leis and I had 13. Almost covered up his
Time for the ceremony. Some of the water committee members
gave a speech and Mike talked for a few minutes with
an interpreter.

Each bag has an LDSC sticker on it
