Nicola from our Swiis Foster Care Glasgow team told us of a family she knew in Nepal. Tenju and his family live in Nepal and have been badly affected by earthquake. Their young baby has been ill as a result of sleeping outside. We decided to raise some funds by donating money and having a raffle in the office.
A total of £270 was raised for Tenju and his family in Nepal. Combined to the amount from others the total sent over was £1005 which works out as 155000 Nepalese rupees and this is apparently more than Tenju would earn in a year. The family are still experiencing extremely difficult circumstances and terrified that there will be another earthquake. The money raised will be used to buy medicine and will give them a better chance of survival.
