Life Changing Experiences of Mission Julley

A nice piece of coverage from The Times of India, as some of the students who went to Leh to distribute the relief materials reflect on the experiences and their impact:

There’s further good news. Over the last couple of weeks the fund raising at Aravali has really picked up momentum, especially with Shri Sangeet and the sale of beautiful mirrors and tiles decorated by the students.

Captain Archana has helped us to identify one more school near Leh which is in desperate need for help. So, the relief materials will be gathered in the next few days and dispatched as soon as possible, especially as winter there is closing in rapidly, temperatures dropping and the need for warm clothing is now urgent.

Mission Julley Update

The Phase III Mission Julley team are in Ladakh now and have just sent back pictures as they have started distributing the materials and meeting up with people in the schools identified for help:

The pictures came back via a Jet Airways flight, arranged by the amazing Captain Archana, an Aravali parent for whom nothing has been too much trouble.

Great going folks.

This initiative to raise funds for the people impacted by the calamities in Leh, Ladakh continues to grow in strength thanks to the energy and enthusiasm of the The Shri Ram School community.

The cricket match and rock concert yesterday raised Rs2.5 lakh and the cycle ride this morning a further Rs25k.

Really well done everyone – and keep up the great work. Big thanks to Kapil Dev, all the band members and everyone else who’s been giving their time and effort to contribute in this worthy cause.
