Hoping for Alms giving

James reported in our previous post this morning via this blog that those in need came out looking for a bit of help from those celebrating the end of Ramadan. They also come out for Holy Days of other religions such as Christmas, etc. It is important that we remember those in need at all times and not only during special holidays. Now that the school in Kabala has completed the Construction Stage and is now in maintenance mode (monthly teacher salaries, student school materials & supplies); Nazareth House wishes to re-focus to our special care of those who have fallen in the cracks; seeking out those who have no other means of assistance for survival, growth or education. We depend on your compassion and generosity to meet these needs.
