Blogs and News - St George's School For Girls, Edinburgh
Prakash (the Chairman of the school) contacted me recently to let us know that Covid has now reached the rural communities of Nepal. All schools have been closed and the provision of education is now minimal. Without the technology that we use, it is becoming increasingly difficult to support the students. However, he is trying his best to engage some of his older students in studying at home so when they can sit their exams when it is possible.
He is fearful that the virus will hit the village as there is no medical care available in the area and it will be challenging to get people to the hospital in Pokhara. He thanks us for our ongoing support and hope he will be able to send us some good news soon.
Please download the easyfundraising app to use as a portal for your online shopping - Mrs Shepherd is using it for our school Amazon orders! These extra donations help the community in Nepal.
If you can make even a small donation through JustGiving that would be fantastic. Every penny we send to Nepal makes a huge impact on the lives of these students.
We sent £1000 in February and I am hoping to send another £700 soon.
