Sports for Life – Camp Nepal är ett projekt som drivs av IF Böljan, Falkenberg och Chhahari Europe tillsammans med olika volontärer. I december 2015 var tanken att anordna en fotbollsturnering för enbart flickor i Kathmandudalen. Tyvärr har jordbävningen och den pågående blockaden gjort att programmet ändrats till att hålla träningar, utbildning och föreläsningar till ett färre antal flickor (och pojkar).

The hostel – some improvements
Some painting on walls inside was made with the assistance from a professional painter. The floors in two rooms were insulated and a new carpet was put on to better keep warm when sitting on the floor. Also two First-Aid kits were delivered. And a lot shirt, jerseys, short and socks were brought by everybody, specially the socks comes handy when it is cold and with the current situation in Nepal.
With the onset of winter many families are struggling to sleep at night because of the cold. The fuel shortages have made things worse, no cooking oil, kerosene oil and the price of food has gone sky high. Nothing has changed since the earthquake and the level of pain and difficulty is just getting worse.” Read more (The Guardian)>>
