SAPHARA HELPS SNEHA FLOOD REPAIRS & ONGOING WORK

Last Wednesday, the Saphara Down team set off for SNEHA school expecting another day of teaching – but a shocking sight awaited them. Here's what they saw:
Torrential monsoon rains had caused devastation and a crisis awaited us when we arrived at the gates of the school. The dismay on the faces of gathered pupils and staff members was very clear to see. Dr Reeta and Ronjoy had already arrived at the school and we witnessed their absolute despair at the shocking scene of flood water everywhere. Many of the pupils, past and present, as well as teachers of SNEHA had already gathered and began trudging through the murky brown water, attempting to remove litter from the school. Seeing bits of the brick wall floating among the debris was really difficult, and the worst thing was seeing pigs scavenging through the litter too. This was particularly devastating as Dr Reeta had begun her school on the streets of the slums with pigs disrupting lessons, and it appeared almost like a full circle had occurred.

Your donation will help SNEHA rebuild their school and support the ongoing work of the wonderful Dr Reeta.

We hope this helps to address the need in the area following the flood. May it be an encouragement to all working so tirelessly in the school. We are grateful that the impact of teaching in the school is something that will never leave our children.
