Old friends from Canada

In January, Tomasz -- an old friend of Operation Shanti -- returned to India with a few of his friends from Canada to visit with the kids.

Tomasz and Tamara held a couple of fabulous fundraisers for us last year, and returned this year with lots of practical goodies for the kids!

Little Adarsh

Little Adarsh, who came to us last year, continues to win everyone's hearts. He's growing up quite nicely, eats well, plays hard, and wins everyone over with his cute smile and impeccable behavior.

Thanks to Dr. Ben Kim and his readers...

... for raising enough money to help us purchase a van for Karunya Mane. The van will come in handy in taking our 3- and 4-year-olds to nursery school when it rains, to pick up food rations in bulk, and for many other practical uses around the shelter.

As with many similar vehicles in India, the van runs on liquid propane gas, which is cleaner and a lot cheaper than gasoline.

Thanks again to Dr. Ben Kim and his readers at!
