Our friend Emma Christmas has visited us at shuktara a couple of times. On both her visits she has made sure that her priority is to spend time with the girls. On Wednesday 22nd March she came with Simon her partner.
They brought lots of things from London and had a great afternoon on this short stopover visit. Emma did a makeup session with the girls. They also brought balloons and cut and paste people to play with. It was a wonderful afternoon and we were all happy to see Emma again. The girls especially love her.
When Sanjib came on 23rd September with food for both of our homes, he promised to come back with clothes for the girls and the boys closer to Durga Puja.
Just check out our latest boy Subhash here who has received his first gift of a new shirt! Below are all the boys with Sanjib and a photo of Muniya and Lali with their gifts of perfume. Everyone looks very happy.
Thank you to Sanjib Shaw for being so generous, and Happy Puja!
Choice Support is a leading social care charity providing services to people with a wide range of support needs throughout much of England. Last week Steven Rose, Chief Executive of Choice Support, and his partner Tracy visited shuktara.
Choice Support has been giving support to shuktara since the beginning of 2016. They were moved by the story of Guria, who was found abandoned on the street but seems to have found the secret to happiness as she is always smiling brightly. This was a wonderful chance for Steven and Tracy to meet Guria and see what her life is like now.
They brought nail varnish and flower headbands for all of the girls which was a good way to get to know the girls. The girls were delighted to have their nails done and wear the headbands, as you can see in the photos.
Thank you Choice Support!
