We work by coming behind an amazing team of people that are charged with the care of so many , and they do it with grace and mercy, freely giving all that they have for those in need. They are currently active in twelve different orphanages, two seniors homes , two homes for the disabled, three shelters, half a dozen schools, three hospitals, consultation and medical aid, administration of micro loans, working with the blind and deaf , working with the Homeless , the adicts, providing counseling care and support for at risk youth and the list goes on.
We provide them with a very small monthly support to help with their out of pocket expenses, and find sponsors for larger projects. They all work other jobs as well, so that they can continue to support those that they are called to work with.
This budget to help them comes out of our general funds. For the last few months we have operated at a deficit and have used up the small buffer that we have. The deficit has been two fold , partially because of the completion of a couple monthly commitments from supporters, and another big factor has been the declining Canadian dollar which is killing us on transfer rates. We have a short fall of about $600 a month. As we were leaving a few weeks ago, I had to share with everyone that we have to make some changes in the new year, and reduce our level of support if we don't have a Christmas Miracle. We need to find some some way to increase the monthly sponsorships to the general fund .
I have learned not to worry about the individual projects, if and when the designated sponsorship comes in, then we can move forward, but I have felt it so important to have a guaranteed monthly operating expenses for our front line Hero's. Please I need your help .. please consider setting, even a small monthly donation to the general fund before the end of the year. Along with covering emergencies, bank fee's and admin so that 100% of designated funds are able to go where needed , Those funds keep our friends out there doing what they do best .
Here are some of those that are on the front line daily doing their actofkindness for those around them ( not all are shown here, some have asked to remain anonymous, but are equally important )
|Emma and Jengish feeding the homeless, they also work with at risk youth and recovering alcoholics |
as well they run the farm which will provide fresh produce to other programs .
|Kamalla works as a teacher , at a homework club at the orphanage, she manages many cases we support, confirming that funds are paid directly to the Dr's or hospitals , as well she cooks and translates for teams ..|
Please consider a monthly sponsorship to support this team of dedicated friends
