Pooja’s implant being fitted

Pooja, who has been deaf since birth, has grown up and become more and more isolated from her friends and the outside world. With no way of calling out for help she faced a future of danger from risk of animal attacks to even the potential of rape. In February we launched a special fundraising initiative in conjunction with The Tiger Tree Foundation to finance a cochlear implant for Pooja.  A select group of generous givers each gave a minimum of £500 towards the cause.

So happy now

 

Pooja is doing so well, she is at home in her village and learning the names of her friends and family for the first time. As soon as her operation site is fully healed she will be going to school and will start regular speech therapy sessions.

Parking company pays

The trust was put forward as a charity to support at a gathering in June for companies who run car park facilities. For each attendee at the conference Unity5 would pay an amount to the trust. A huge thank you to ZATPARK USER GROUP for their generous donation of £1300 raised from the event. Neil Cooper from The Tiger Tree Foundation was visiting Solomon last week and was able to hand over the cheque. If you would like to get involved with some organised fundraising contact us for any help you might require regarding publicity material.

New bus delivered

In July Solomon took delivery of a new school bus, funded by our great supporters at The Tiger Tree Foundation. Thank you to all those of you who donated, the children will love having a new bus for their daily journeys.
