We have been able to expand our program to meet increasing needs because of the fund.Here are some of the voices of those helped:”Thank you, Mrs. Maria and Mrs. Janette, for the help so I could get my glasses. I really needed them. And specially the other people who donated them. Thank you again because I did not had the resources to get them myself.” “Thank you for the attention you gave in helping us with V’s house. Thankyou very much.””‘Thank you’ doesn’t seem like enough to say for the help you have given me with my recent rent dilemma. A person’s house, and mine in particular, is so important to feeling safe and secure in this world so thank you for allowing the feeling of security and well-being. Thank you, thank you, thank you.””Thank you so much for help with financial support for medicine. I hope I will be in good health for summer. I hope all of you are well, and thank you so much for help me.””Thank you for helping our family over the years.
