Sisters Lisa Perekkatt, Suchita Kullu, and Malini Manjoly visited a young girl who has become very close to the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth. During the April earthquake this young girl nearly lost her life. She faced a difficult road to recovery. Sisters continually meet with her to check her progress.

Today she is doing much better. She was delighted to see Sister Lisa again. Sister gave pencils and crayons to her and her two siblings. The young girl now attends a Nepali medium school. Her mother said she is blooming and is comfortable in relating with her friends and the teachers and that her injury during the great earthquake has given a new life for the young girl. When she came from Tippling, she used to be shy and quiet as she did not speak Nepali. That is beginning to change.
Despite the family’s blessings during the earthquake, life can still be difficult in its aftermath. The girl’s mother works late hours doing difficult manual labor. She gets paid around four dollars per night. She puts the children to sleep before she goes to work. Her husband works outside of Nepal to support the family.
The Sisters were offered ghee (homemade butter) in a crumbled plastic bottle by the mother. They were humbled by the gesture.
Through the overwhelming support and prayers from the worldwide SCN Family and the actions of the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth in Nepal this girl will face a brighter future to come.
