New Hope Newsletter June 2016

It has been a long time since Maggie sister has put out a newsletter for the subscribers of New Hope Australia. At this time Maggie sister is very ill and we are filling in to take the pressure off her. With her present health problem we are hoping that she can take a break from the intensive fund raising she usually does and others will take a ‘share’ in this important role. Like Maggie sister we are stepping out in faith and to quote her “I’m stepping out in faith to ask if you could help with New Hope Rural...

2016 Bike Ride Report

After a day at the New Hope Community Centre in Kothavalsa (North Andhra Pradesh) the Bike Ride Team and Indian support group went by scenic train to the hill station at Araku. 22 Tunnels and still a very typical non tourist train with vendors getting on and off the train with fruit, sweets, tea and shoe shines.

The fact is that we don’t want to spend money on that because it would mean we would have to use some of your donation to pay for a glossy brochure or TV advert. So here is our simple message .Christmas...

Hud Hud Cyclone Relief

There was a very short last minute alert that the tracking of the Hud Hud Cyclone would actually hit the coast at Visakhapatnam. I had gone to Muniguda the previous day as normally the cyclones hit far more north in places like Berhampur and Puri where we have leprosy colony care programmes. When I heard that the path had changed and Visakhapatnam had been struck I was stunned. However we had made basic plans on the possibility that we may suffer strong winds and that possibly highways would be blocked north of us. We purchased longer shelf life vegetables and...
