A HUGE Thank You!!!

We are delighted to let you know that, thanks to your ongoing generosity and support, we have recently reached the enormous milestone of raising £400k towards supporting children and vulnerable people in Bhutan. 

In this strange period of time we are living through, when charity events and fundraising opportunities are greatly diminished, we are so thankful for the generous donations that enable us to continue with our vital work. Despite the very tricky conditions, we are continuing to make progress with well selected projects.
