Support helped fund children’s house in Nepal

A recent concert raised enough money to sustain the Gaige Children’s House in Nepal for the coming months.

Dear Editor:

The team from the Gaige Children’s House of Kathmandu, Nepal would like to thank Cynthia Kereluk, Critteraid, and the businesses and residents of Summerland for their overwhelming support of the Oct. 20 KidsAid Fundraiser.

Through your dedication and donations, enough money was raised to sustain the Gaige Children’s House for the coming months.

The Gaige Children’s House is a home for orphaned children in Kathmandu, Nepal.

This house is a joint project between former Summerland residents Preston Wright, Karen Strachan Cuthbertson and the Human Health Development Committee of Nepal.

Thank you again for your generous contributions and time.

We are thrilled that the Gaige Children’s Home is so strongly connected to our home community.

Preston Wright and

Karen Strachan Cuthbertson

Kathmandu, Nepal
