Coming in the new year

Lots more food hampers and Christmas parties today , but I am going to interrupt that report with some time sensitive needs .. Time sensitive because this is the last opportunity to get donations in for the 2022 tax year, and we thought it would be good to highlight some of our upcoming needs . 

We have been providing seeds and a food hamper to about 250 families who plant gardens and share with their family and neighbours .  the cost of this project is $5000  

In just a few weeks it will be time to book our return flights to Kyrgyzstan .  the travel expenses this spring will likely be around $4000. 

Our operating budget for all that we do is also a big need for us .  Donations come in for individual designated needs, but the on going operating budget for salaries and food and utilities is around $2500 per month .

Please consider donating towards any of these needs. It would be such a blessing to start the year off with some of the pressure lifted . 

OK so I said I was going to hold off todays reports, but thought I would slip one through … This gentleman is so blessed and relieved to receive a Christmas hamper and wanted us to be sure to thank everyone who donated towards this need .
