It is always an awesome journey down that road to Da Mo.....
..........but always worth it for the wonderful welcome waiting below!
EMA Eagle Mount Adventures ( Claire and John from the UK, living in Nanning)
come each year to share the Christmas story
The kids LOVE them
and it is so fantastic that they share the story with the kids in Chinese.
There is such an air of joy, happiness and excitement when they are there....
...and all so eager to help!
Santa has arrived!
So many have no warm jackets, no proper shoes............
This lady has SIX children!
....and then a BOY!
Her other daughter is 16 and married!!!!!!
This is very common for the Da Mo girls and why we are so proud of the first ever girls to get to High School, thanks to their sponsors in Guangxi Girls and the support our staff have been able to give to them thro their hard times!
Bubbles & Balloons
..there are still too many families living in these wooden houses which are so unsafe,
and provide little protection in the cold weather
And it looks like we have some new Da Molla to add to our collection.
The women of this village make these Miao costumes by hand to sell to try and improve their living conditions. We sell for them £25 /$40 and all of the proceeds go back to help the women!
You can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to buy a doll and help support Da Mo families
Ending with some cheery shouts from the Da Mo Children!
And Thank You for helping us to be a little bit warmer!
