We want to thank God for another good week in our school.We continue to teach and help the children,as these children means much to us as well as you all.
Pa. Foday with support from the school staff, continues to do the home visits. As a part of the school activities,it is really helping us as a school to build good relationship with the parents and the community around us.
This week in the school has also been very important to us especially in the area of prayers.We have offered special prayers for Mama Vicki and Father Hicks as they went to California to in the name of Nazareth House Apostolate.
This week also witnesses the 49th Independent Day celebration of our country. In Kabala, as all other parts of the country,people celebrate this great day in various ways.The tradition in Kabala includes :a general March Pass (parade) from all works of life,especially government institutions.Schools, both primary and secondary, took part in the March Pass as well. It was a good and happy sight to see our Nazareth House School Kabala take part in the march pass for the first time.What a joy and blessing you have given this children to have there rightful place in society through your help and support.To you all we say keep up the good work.
The Independent Day celebration was climaxed with the launching of the Free Medical Health Care for suckling mothers and children under five.The Kabala Yogomaia Town field was the scene of the programme. The programme was well attended,as the free medical health care means a lot to us out here. The health status in Kabala and the country as a whole is nothing to write home about as we have the lowest life expectancy rate in the world,in fact infant mortality is still the highest in the world. On average it is about 500-1000 people to one doctor,also poor condition of service climax the recent strike by medical staff.With this free medical system in place,all sierra Leonean are hoping for the better especially the poorest of the poor. Poverty rate is also very high about 80% of the people live on less than $ 1 a day.With such a move by the government,we hope the lives of our mothers and children will be save.
May His love and Grace keep us together.
