After weeks of spring showers and April rainbows, the month of May so long-awaited had finally ushered in with its scented breezes of blooming flowers, misty mornings and clouded skies. Acting as a bridge between spring and summer, this month hinted at warmer weather for those still stuck in spring’s grasp while heating things up for those already well on their way. 

However, like with its unpredictable, this month was cut short due to unfortunate circumstances; nonetheless, the Rainbow Village Family hopes that all families were able to stay safe and healthy during these times. 

With the return back soon, we hope that everyone can gradually fall back into their routines and that new adjustments help everyone feel at home once again.
