“Dogs With Heart”, a project from Heart of Ganesh and The Elephant Love Project, held the first Mobile Medical Outreach clinic at the village temple yesterday and everywhere you looked there were good families patiently waiting for hours for their dogs to receive free health care from the Heart.
Tomorrow we begin implementing “Dogs With Heart”. Many will say that to even begin such a project in a rural village is foolish, for hungry, mangy, suffering dog are everywhere.
And that is exactly why we begin. Because they are everywhere.
It was so good to see the kids from Putrom 2 again, the 2nd year Heart of Ganesh has supported their return to school by making sure they had the necessary supplies to start the new year off right! Collaborating with the Elephant Livelihood Environment Initiative has been a joy, witnessing the multi-layered changes that can occur when organizations work together for the benefit of all beings.
After handing out bags and singing songs, we visited the library we built for Putrom 2 last year, and we were seriously thrilled to see the condition of the books, art supplies, and the creative work that is being done there. A charity never truly knows what will happen to what they lovingly built when visa’s and other work require moving on to another project in another country. To walk in to the library and see the care that has been taken was a HeartFull moment!
When I asked Mr. Savouen if there was anything that needed improved upon, he asked if the “Book Check-Out” sheets could be reformatted, because the children were checking out SO MANY BOOKS that there wasn’t enough room to record them…For a school and a village that previously had no access to a library, this was the best possible request we could have received and we look forward to funding and expanding our support of these great kids. The close-in walls of their small village will expand ten-fold if they are all given the chance to read, read, and read some more. And then? Who knows what good they might do in the world. ❤️???”
