Meet the Bhujel family

by Brittney Howell


On the banks of the Manohara River in Kathmandu, Nepal, lives 12-year-old Samjhana Bhujel and her family. Samjhana has two sisters, ages 10 and 5, and one younger brother, just 6 months old. When our local partners first met this girl, she was in a desperate state. Lacking the basic necessities such as food, clothing, and shelter, this child and her family struggled to survive. Her father fought to provide for his family, collecting plastic and glass bottles from garbage bins in an effort to earn a living. However, it wasn’t enough. Lacking nutritious food and proper care, the children were often sick and unable to get the help they needed.
Four months ago, our volunteers, through local partners, met this family. Seeing their great need, they immediately began providing food. In just a few short months, the health of the children has already improved! The provision of food has also allowed the family to focus on their other needs. Samjhana’s father is now able to look for a more stable job and hopes to find a plot of land to grow food and build a more permanent shelter. Samjhana has even been able to begin attending school!
The food provided through YOUR donations has opened up so many new doors for this struggling family.

93,960 meals were distributed in Asia during the first quarter of 2016.

Remember, 100 percent of all donations made to the USANA True Health Foundation ALWAYS go toward changing live
s across the world.
