NHA Kabala School receives supplies from St. Laurence House

Remember a few blog posts past, when Roo, in the above photo, showed us the supplies that he and his dad, James, bought for our school in Kabala?


All of those items have now been successfully delivered. James and Kadijah with the whole St. Laurence Family from Freetown journeyed to Kabala last weekend to deliver the school supplies.

They were received by Mako, Pastor Foday and the teachers. Roo is extremely excited to be able to present the gifts. Kadijah helps sort the items out on the table.
We are very grateful to James and Kadijah and the whole family for tirelessly doing the work of Nazareth House. It is one thing for us to raise the money, get supplies and get it to James. Its another story once it leaves our hands. After it arrives in Freetown, this family does all the work. Buying the rice, the supplies, paying the medical fees, paying the school fees, tending to the sick, traveling on the regular trips to bring the the needs and supplies from Freetown to Kabala (a long tedious journey), distributing rice and needs to the villagers along the way, plus all the other work they do daily for us.

You work very hard Mansaray Family and NHA appreciates it very much. Thank you.

Nazareth House loves you all!
James, Kadijah
Lucy & Ann Marie
and of course,
lil ROO

God bless you and thank you!
