The Work of Nazareth House Apostolate

All of us have dealt with a lot of sadness lately, for Nazareth House it has been well pronounced. Many of our good friends have went on before us and we are left here on earth to carry on. Lonely as it might be at times, we must do just that...CARRY ON. Too much is at stake to stop the momentum of the great work that has been started by our loved ones who have recently gone ahead of us. We must never forget and strive to move forward; knowing they are in the cloud of witnesses cheering us on.

Nazareth House is doing what Nazareth House does... loving Salone.

Kadijah, Ann Marie and lil' Roo packed up some necessities and went to deliver them to Marianna. Before he passed on in October, Nazareth House promised Pa Amadu, Marianna's late husband, that we would take care of his family. A promise must be kept and through your generosity we are keeping it well.
Supplies in hand, they carry them into Marianna's home.
...a few bars of soap, a little powdered laundry soap, some tea, some powdered milk ...
...and a little cash in which to eat, pay bills and exist...

WOW! Isn't it wonderful - we are loving seeing these smiles!!!!

Nazareth House works individually, finding those in need and helping according to what best helps that family. Of course, we do what we can to provide medical supply to hospitals, (especially Kroo Bay & Kabala Gov. Hospital) and we provide for our Kabala School... but our real work is finding those in the cracks, left out, not noticed - who quietly struggle to exist. Making a difference - one person, one family - at a time. Thank you for your continued support in providing for these beautiful people.
