I understand many of you have been waiting for word from me about my annual trip to India this year.
It truly hurts me to tell you that it can not happen because of Covid 19.
I would very much like to go and see all the people that I have visited over many years but the Indian borders are closed to outsiders. There are no International flights allowed to India and visas are canceled, the country is in lockdown.
The hard mail to India was also suspended until last month so I have stored the donations that I have been given. Even now the US post office tells me they can guarantee the mail to get to India but not sure what will happen when it arrives in India and if it will make it to its final destination because of the pandemic.
In less than a year the entire world, not just here in the USA but every country in the world has been taken over by this deadly virus that nobody had ever seen before.
To date there have been 8 million confirmed Covid 19 cases in India with 121,527 deaths. In the State of West Bengal India where Kolkata is located , there are near 4,000 new cases every day …..
In the USA we have had 8 million cases with 230,000 deaths.
I will be so happy when the calendar turns the page to 2021
2020 has been a horrible year for everyone in the world, including me.
I am doing my very best to communicate with the people in India and get a few things done.
Our sponsorships are going to school in remote via zoom and other media and so far all the children are ok.
I check flights every day to India hoping things will change as far as traveling there, but I have come to the conclusion it will not happen in 2020. My hopes are maybe to go in early to mid 2021 but I do not know what the future holds for any of us.
Many of you still send me donations and support Children are Angels from Heaven and I am grateful for that. As always I will be accountable and responsible for your donations.
As I said earlier in this mail it has been a very bad year and I have been working on my next newsletter for all of you.
I’m sorry to say it will be late this year regarding the 2019 trip.
I ask you to be patient, and you will have it soon in your mailbox or online.
I am very very very sure that it may be the BEST news that you will read about in all of 2020 once it is finished and sent to you.
There are many interesting ,Happy stories in the Children are Angels from Heaven newsletter made by all of you last year. Yes there are a few sad stories but many more are happy stories. Nothing like you see on the news or in the newspapers every day now because the world news is all bad because of the pandemic. I hope when you read our Newsletter that you can smile again, and let my stories bring you back to happier times.
I would like all of you to watch this music video by David and his friends.
It is a tribute to our Health Care Workers all over the world during these trying times.
I consider it very special and beautiful.
Thank You for all your understanding about my 2020 trip. My hopes are that it is delayed not canceled
No matter what, Stay Safe and look after your family.
God Bless all of you.
