The Love Continues - New Clothes for Tsagaan Sar
Thanks to the amazing generosity of one woman, Anujin (must check on her full name) a staunch supporter of our foundation, over 100 children had brand new clothes for Tsagaan Sar. For many of these children this was their very first brand new outfit and thus very exciting! Anujin had thought a few years ago to open a high end children's clothing store , but as happens sometimes in life, the plans for the store never got off the ground and she ended up with a container full of brand new clothes. In an act of generosity she decided to distribute these new clothes to the neediest children from our community. She and her uncle came up and to see the joy on the children's faces when they received their gifts. Thank you Anujin for making so many childrens' Tsagaan Sar a wonderful one!

Baskaa ( Veloo Foundation Local NGO partner and Chairman of the Board for the Kindergarten) Shinee ( Willing Volunteer) and Chelvan Veloo - President of Veloo Foundation. All of the children pictured currently attend the Children of the Peak Sanctuary Project.
Because this wonderfully generous donation is a group of clothes that were originally going to be sold in a local designer shop there were a number of replicas of the same article in different sizes ... certainly made for a very coordinated group of children!
I agree with him ... two thumbs up for a fabulous day that saw SO many children get brand new clothes and the chance to feel like a "regular" kid!
