During this building stage, we have had lots of space behind the house, so we have turned it into a small chicken farm.
We have 50 ish baby chickens given from a village recently, but now our mother chicken has just given birth to our first chik, born on-site here. How wonderful!
Though it is possibly only a month or two away till house building completion, we still need your support to keep this pace up.
The government has also given us one new child recently, but they have yet to arrive.
Bless you all,
Our friends at Every Village (http://www.evmin.org/) really want to build the Compassion kids a new home! So while we have been working on buying land, these guys have been fundraising to build the home. And they really don’t do things by halves. So we are excited to invite you to ONESOUND!
ONESOUND is a one day music festival featuring the best of New Zealand Christian music, and all proceeds will go to building a home for the kids.

We have had so much fun on the Wellington fair circut the last few weeks! It was great to get a chance to meet people and talk about Compassion, and Nepal in general – it’s surprising how many Wellingtonians have ventured over there, we are an adventerous bunch aren’t we.
The Island Bay festival cranked out the sun burn, and the Newtown fair was as colourful and entertaining as Newtown always is. We managed to sell heaps of our treats from Nepal, and fundraised a good amount for the kids.
Thanks everyone who came along, if you saw something you liked or if you see anything in the photos, flick us an email, [email protected], amd we’ll sort you out…if you want a Yak blanket you better get in there quick!
Don’t forget the KIlbirne fair this Sunday the 10th of March! We will be there with bells on, and hope you will be too.
Compassion Nepal held a Poker Night in Wellington recently. We raised heaps of money towards land for the new orphanage. Fun times were had and awesome prizes were won!
