The gear has finally been inventoried, sorted and packed. Among all the other fabulous donations from across Canada, 62 pairs of hockey skates went to the Police Recovery Camp, 41 to Kargyam and another 23 to Thangnak. Good thing Thangnak got more skates too - as they have 70 kids skating this year!
The 104 helmets are a real treasure - hoping to keep many more kids safe on the ice this year.
And as we finish freezing our Recovery Camp Rink we look forward to 40 participants from that Camp inaugurating the ice with those 70 kids and their 3 wonderful coaches on 13 January.
Thanks everyone in Canada who made this possible! And especially Air Canada Cargo, Velan Inc, NiceRink and CanAssist for hanging in there til the gear arrived!
Cynthia will be blogging as she works with our Himalayan projects this year.
