Dear Friend of kids.R.ok

This will be a long newsletter which is a good thing as it means a lot of activities has been taking place on the front and behind the scenes. Some excellent news about the children's home construction work being over to a new obstacle which sprung up like a stumbling block in Orissa and finally the not so thrilling deluge in Chennai which left a city of 9 million people entrapped by flood waters.

Without much deliberation, I will let you navigate through this newsletter to find the joy in helping the needy and the 'despair to hope' in overcoming challenges to help the underprivileged children.

Troubles may arise but nothing can keep away their smile.

When 60 became 12

Much has transpired over the past few months but I will try my best to concise it for the sake of you readers. We suffered a setback at the children's home, when the local authorities under the political guise threatened to shut down the children's home stating the "lack of infrastructure" clause. The irony being we had just finished constructing a new hall, toilets and bathrooms, along with clean drinking water facility. The final status as of date is we were allowed to keep 12 children which meant unfortunately we had to send the rest to their relatives homes.

kids.R.ok believes that we are in this tough terrain to undertake this project not for the numbers but to make a substantial difference to the future of the children growing up in Orissa having access to quality education. In this endeavour we ask for your support and patience to overcome the challenges in this region.

Chennai Deluge Relief Efforts

It was heartening to see the response of our team to help the affected children living in Saidapet slums. The kids.R.ok team in Chennai (India) did an incredible job of collecting aid from compassionate donors and delivering the materials to children directly. 250 children who lost their belongings in the floods received new clothes, shoes, school bags, notebooks and stationary items from kids.R.ok.
