St Laurence House Freetown receives supplies

A shipment from Nazareth House Louisville has arrived at St. Laurence House Freetown. It contains medical supply and other various items to be distributed in Freetown and Kabala. The medical supplies are for the Kabala Government Hospital, Dr. James Conteh. There are 14 more supply boxes on the way plus the even more valuable necessities that Fr. Seraphim and I will bring when we arrive. Thanks to all the support, Nazareth House will be doing quite a large volume of work in Sierra Leone this next trip. We ask your prayers.

The school uniform NHA emblem patches have also arrived in Freetown with this batch of supplies. Perfect timing to be put on Uniforms. We are still working to assure that all of the students have a uniform. $25 buys 2 uniforms per child.

Send donations to: Nazareth House Apostolate, Kabala Student Uniform Program, 2216 Goldsmith Lane, Louisville Kentucky 40218. A picture of the child in the uniform you provided will be sent to you. Thank you.

Claudio Lopez visited Jonah House (Nazareth House Retreat Center in Louisville) yesterday and he, along with Fr. Seraphim sends greetings to James in Freetown. We all are happy to hear that James is making an improvement and the ulcer treatment is working thus far.

NHA wishes everyone a relaxing weekend.
