Delivering red & white striped smiles

As James continues on his way to Kabala,

one child after another receives a special treat, a candy cane.


The students at Nazareth House Kabala School anxiously wait for their candy canes to arrive. The picture below is of the students receiving their candy canes last year. Be sure to note the difference when you see the students this year receiving the candy canes. These pictures will be posted in the next day or so. When you see this years photos, notice that the students now have school uniforms and a school building - thanks to Nazareth House Apostolate and those who support its endeavors to aid and assist the lives of those in Sierra Leone.
