Handmade In Nepal
Met a lovely young lady, Leila Smith, who runs the Smith Rajak House in Nepal with her husband. They care for children from poor, struggling, uneducated families. I was so taken by her enthusiasm and dedication that I donated to her 3 copies of each of my Children's Picture books - Cric Croc, Cric Croc and the Bedraggled Pony and Why Crocodiles Smile. She said the kids would love to read and share these. I also donated 5 copies of my novel, Daintree Reflections.
Leila is from WA and her parents have a Secondhand Shop in Mahogany Creek. If you see her around or want to hear her story or you even want to help, Go to the links below.
