The women of Nepal receive a beautiful holiday gift from a supporter

We send a warm Thank You to Dutch poet and author Lisa Naus for this beautiful poem inspired by the work that Bridges Between is doing in rural Nepal.  Happy holidays Lisa from everyone at Bridges Between!


Hey, you, strange lady on the street 
what lies behind your smile 
tell me your story 
and I’ll tell you mine. 

The words and feelings we share 
make life a lot easier to bare 
no matter our home, our colour, our religion 
in our hearts we keep the same intention. 

Seeking for happiness 
we cross the world, see its beauty 
that makes us, women, one big family. 

Hey, you, sister on the street 
you’re beautiful, you’re great 
for a new friendship it’s never too late! 

~ Lisa Naus
