From 31st May 2015 we can no longer accept donations through this page
We request that you send your donations in the next few days to get the 25% Gift Aid added.
It is our wish to set up a charity to accept donations for Occed Nepal Children’s Home, in order to provide long term support, but that will take time and cannot be completed until I return to England
In the meantime we are looking at alternative ways to collect and transfer your donations after 1st June and ask that you email us on email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send you the details
Further updates will be posted on facebook & our 2 JustGiving pages
This page for the new house &
https://www.justgiving.com/OCCEDNepalChildrensHomeKathmandu/ for education & running costs
THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR DONATIONS & THE SUPPORT YOU ARE GIVING THE CHILDREN
Anne, Dot & Monica
We have our Dream Home for the children.
Thank you so very much to everyone who has donated to our new home since the earthquake. We are very near to our target with more promises still to come in. I hope we will also be able to cover the cost of hiring a lorry to move. It will take many trips to move everything for this family of 40 people
A deal was agreed this afternoon [Wednesday 8th April 2015] for the purchase of a house not too far from their present location. It is currently being rented as a school and they will be moving out in 3 months - the end of JulyThere is a short fall in the proceeds from the sale of the land and the price of this house. There have been some very generous donations made and promised both in Nepal & UK
PLEASE CAN YOU HELP US RAISE THE EXTRA NEED - Every bit helps even if it is only a small amount and with the addition of 25% Gift Aid this can make a big difference.
Please remember to tick the Gift Aid box if you are a UK taxpayer
There were further
delays in obtaining planning and access road for the land so it was decided that it should be sold and a buyer has been found
One of the two adjoining properties occupied at Naxal in the centre of Kathmandu has now been repossessed, sold & demolished. There has been a temporary addition built onto the older building to accommodate the boys. Living conditions are very cramped and it is essential that different accommodation is found as soon as possible.
Rental is very expensive and landlords have refused to
rent their property for use as a children’s home so buying is the best option
The land that was purchased has been put up for sale and there is someone interested in purchasing it. The proceeds from this sale will be used to help buy a ready built home
The children’s home is run by a non-profit making charity, which was set up in 1999 by a group of Nepalese business men and is called OCCED/Nepal [Organisation for Community, Child & Environment Development]. It takes care of approximately 40 children aged birth to 16 years who are orphaned, abandoned or displaced
All money donated will have Gift Aid added, if applicable, and transfer it into the OCCED bank account.
