What's for Dinner?

Photo #4: Roo anxiously waits for dinner to be cooked so he can fill his belly.

Charities are hurting financially and Nazareth House Apostolate is no exception. Americans have had to cut out on travel and watch our food budgets in the USA, however, in Sierra Leone it is more than a matter of cutting something out of the budget. There is no income to cut from, it is a matter of going hungry and starvation. Please, give what you can - we can make a difference in their lives with what those of us in the West consider "very little money" - so please - any contribution is better than none at all. Thank You.
