After we got back to the Children’s Home from our day at the community hospital yesterday afternoon, everyone fell asleep for a while. Then I really fell asleep. Since we left Kaski I’ve been so tired and had a lot of headaches. I’m probably just worried about my lost memory card with all my pictures on it…ok I’m very upset about that. And also, let’s face it, it’s been a long week.
While I was sleeping in the afternoon, everyone else treated and trained the kids here at Joining Hands Nepal. I woke up in time to take a few pictures – Catherine was back in her groove teaching the cards, and Lissa was treating Himal’s knee with one of the kids as her helper. Himal is the 25-year-old founder and director of this children’s home, with the support of ForWorld Thinking. Prem and I met and spent some time with Himal when I arrived in Kathmandu; he saw his first bus when he was 16 years old. He’s now the father figure for these 8 kids.
This morning during breakfast we got to playing thumb-wars and hot-hands and other hand-games on the roof in the sun.
Today Lissa and Catherine and I will go back to Kathmandu, but Will is going to stay here a few days. Today he’s actually going back to the hospital, because they wanted more after yesterday…and I think that the kids here at JHN are going to keep him pretty busy too.
