On a cold and drizzly day a few months ago, a little 5 year old girl, abandoned by her family and left to starve on the streets of Kathmandu, was looking for a hot meal at a feeding station - along with hundreds of others. The social workers who were serving food noticed that she was sniffing glue offered to her by older children - a way for her to escape, if only momentarily, from hunger, fear and the possibility of being taken by human traffickers... a habit that would kill her, slowly and horribly...
Today this little girl lives at Ama Ghar, our home for children in the lush Godavari valley outside Kathmandu. She sleeps snugly in a warm and comfortable room, she eats plenty of healthy food - and she goes to school with her new brothers and sisters.. But most importantly, she has a childhood. She and her sisters play with dolls - she gets lots of hugs - she laughs a lot.
Without Ama Foundation and donors like you, she would have been lost to the cycle of poverty and violence. And there are so many more...
Please help us to raise funds to rescue these children at risk. If you donate at least $50 toward our goal of $30,000 raised by June 1, 2013, we'll send you a signed piece of art created by the children of Ama Ghar. And you'll have the satisfaction of knowing that you have saved a life.
