This newsletter is about summer camp of the children and about a special fundraising action.
About the summer camp Boldsaikhan and two children wrote us the following:
This time our summer camp was in the Hentii Aimag at Dadal sum, around 350 km from Choibalsan. We went to Dadal from August 11th until the 20th. We saw many kind of things. We also did a lot of singing, swimming, different kind of sport competitions. We made four groups, all children were in different groups. Group names: Happy group, Jingle hunter group, Smile group, Jingle bear group.
Sport games were a great competition . We also went fishing, collecting fruits, having fun. This time I went to the camp with my family and some Anna home teachers. it was very nice. The first day we slept on the way because it was a long way and the road was not good, also we were a little tired. But it was so much fun to see many things on the way. The next day in the morning we came to Dadal ‘’Balij” river, where we set our tents and built a stove, and other things. Then we followed the schedule of the next days. Every morning we did some exercise and played some fun games, and organized sport competitions. Our children were so happy because it was very different from the last summer camp, because we choose a new place every year, to make it more interesting for the children. Balj river has many kind of fish and has very clean and clear water. All children went to the river every day to go swimming and fishing.
Also I carried my younger boy on my back and we collected fruits together, it was a lot of fun for me and him.
The results of the sport competitions:
First place – Happy group. Second place – Jingle hunter group. Third place – Smile group.
The last night we went to see many kinds of natures and a Mini Zoo, because the local old man had a zoo. Then we went back home.
ANNA HOME CHILDREN TALK ABOUT THE SUMMER CAMP:
We went to Dadal. All children went to Dadal. It was very nice because we saw Chingis khaan’s birth place and zoo, collected fruits, did some fishing, went swimming, made many fun things and competitions. Our group was great we ate many kind of fruits and saw a lot of nice nature. We were dancing and singing at night. In the tent it was great, when before sleeping we talked about many things, made more more fun things and also made good friends. We are thankful for the fundraising made in Holland.
We went to Dadal this Summer camp. It was very nice for me because it was my first time going to Dadal sum. When we were going to Dadal on the way we were singing a lot of different songs. I think that Dadal has a beautiful nature. In the sky there are many kind of butterflies flying and the landscape is very green, the water of the river was very clear and everything looked so peaceful. I want to go to Dadal again. I will go to my school soon, in the beginning of next month. I thank all our sponsors and teachers.
THE 3 ANNA’S
Anna 1, Anna 2 and Anna 3 walked the Four Days Marches of Nijmegen. Four times a terribly long, blisters causing march. But they did this for Anna Home. They themselves wrote tot heir many sponsors:
Four Days Marches were a real party and during our walking we explained to several interested people what Anna Home is and what it does for the children. We then realised again how well we have our life here, and this made it a great pleasure to suffer a bit fort his cause during those four days.
It was heart warming that we received so much support. We are happy with all the money we collected and that totalled more than € 2000.
Carine (1), Geerte (2) and Maaike (3) thank you very much on behalf of the children of Anna home.
