Silent Auction – a success

We would like to thank all of you who took part in our silent auction. Thanks to the generosity of our Canadian sponsors, Tara Bodong was able to successfully auction off the Vancouver-Tofino package. Bids closed at midnight on 30th June, 2019. We raised a total of €1318 which will go towards the care of the 21 girls who we support at our shelter in Lumla, Arunachal Pradesh, NE India.
