Part 2: Visit to Prisoners Assistance Nepal (March 2018)

Everybody loves cake so when we reached Kathmandu, the first thing we did was to look for a cake shop.   As in our past events, we’d always ask the cake artist to do our LOVE makes life beautiful design.   It was a struggle because not many Nepalese speak English so we had a hard time explaining how we wanted the cake to turn out.

After hours of hitting the streets of Kathmandu, we saw Yeti Coffee and Bakeshop, a quaint cakeshop in Thamel and the nice lady said the chef could customise a cake for us!

We planned to bring this huge cake to the children on our visit to their homes.   So happy the cake turned out just nice!  We had earlier asked Indira to translate LOVE makes life beautiful in their language.  We had that written on the cake so the kids could read the message – Mayale jiwanlai sundhar banaaucha!

Our first stop was this home in Manang Gate Nayabajar.  It’s where the younger kids stay with Indira and her biological daughter, along with a few volunteer carers.  Right across the home is PA Nepal’s office.  The home owners are nice enough to let Indira use their property at an affordable lease price.

The children loved the huge cake we brought for them!  Thank you very much, Yeti Coffee and Bakeshop for preparing this cake for the children despite the very short notice!

We gave each child a cotton bag for their school supplies and a digital watch!

 

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.” ― Leo F. Buscaglia
