Several people have said it seems a long time since the last news from Bhola and accompanying photographs. This is because there hasn’t been much news, good or bad! It has of course been terribly hot, and they had their first big storm at the end of May – a large branch landing on the roof of the new tailoring building. It would appear that our construction is strong. Building is progressing well and the first floor is in place.

At the moment they are making the septic tank at Valumia. The vegetables are growing well – no connection there!

All the children are fine. Ali has been working too hard, and our top priority this summer is to recruit a strong support team for him. We are working closely with our fellow trustees in Bangladesh and are getting help from the Swedish Support Group, many of whom have worked in Bangladesh and have good connections.
