A new school year is beginning

A few update just received from India. After almost two months of summer holidays the children have come back with renewed strength and enthusiasm to start their school new academic year. The climate in Tamil Nadu is very hot and because of the excess heat the schools have started on 12th June instead of 1st June. This year 5 new children joined the house. With the help of Manipal hospital from Salem last Sunday we had a free general medical and eye camp conducted for the people around the Pethanaickenpayam village. Nearly 60 people came to Anna4children’s house to use this opportunity. Our girls had free blood test, general check-up and eye check up done. Sister Lowra joined us from the Chennai Salesian Sisters community together with five new girls from the region. Once again thank you for every effort you make to help the children's welfare.
