Here’s Suma Muthukattuparampil, SCN, in her office at the school for the mentally disabled in Katmandu, Nepal. There are over 90 children who are bused daily (some are on the bus for up to 2 hrs just to get to the school). Those parents who can, pay a small tuition, those who can’t, well, Sister Suma finds a way. The staff are really dedicated in their work with these kids. Most are profoundly handicapped or autistic and the thing they want, need and get the most is love and a supportive environment. Sister Suma is the head administrator, but it’’s clear her greatest joy is when each child finds a way to visit her during the day.
