Two new friends from the UK came to visit everyone at Karunya Mane. One of the women works with the elderly in the UK, and spent some time with Jayamma.

Jayamma used to live on the streets of Mysore for years, maybe 25 years or more. She's been with us at Karunya Mane for almost a year. She suffers from a weak heart, and doesn't really talk anymore but the staff and other women at KM help to feed and clean her every day. Jayamma also has her own way of communicating, and loves when people touch her or hold her hands.

She really enjoyed her time with Kate.
