We checked the requested beds & they’re able to be repaired.

We called a supplyer nearby & checked the costs of the materials to repair.

We bought materials for beds & water feed valves etc. from him on the spot & requested to 10 volunteers to fix them. The repair work will be finished in one day.

***********************************

The donated money:

The balance of the donated money at the event 2014 should be used for  repairing & employment of one nurse & one nursery school teacher for some months. It is for teaching the care staffs in the pagoda how to care better. Ms.Ly started to search them immediately. Thanks for her !

The donated money kept in U café, from Japanese donors, will be used to buy playing equipment in the yard, picture books, KAMISHIBAI & music equipment. Because we think that the babies & the infants need to take precedence to develop their mind & sensibility.

We hope that all supporters will agree with us to our decision.

We also request you all to support the babies & infants in the pagoda continuously. Thank you for your further support in advance.
