Sadly, this day has come...today we bid farewell to our very dear volunteers, Ondrej and Lyah, who have been with us since the beginning. It was such a special day here at Camp Hope. The mothers collected money and purchased a traditional Sherpa backhu for Lyah, and a traditional men's top for Ondrej. Then, they dressed her up and applied make-up just as they would as a Sherpa bride. The camp priest and many of our members performed a ritual puja, ensuring them a safe journey home. It was a very emotional day for everyone. Everyone presented both of them with kadas (traditional ceremonial scarf), as well as small gifts as a way remembrance for their time spent at Camp Hope. It was an amazing and very touching day.
