Thank you for supporting our project

Lamp of the path
Lamp of the path

Since 2004, Lamp of the Path has operated a Community Centre in Ulaanbaatar, which provides poor and homeless individuals with hot nutritious meals 5 days a week, as well as free clothing and medical assistance.

In 2013, Friends of Humanity continued to support the soup kitchen which has helped save many lives of people living in excruciatingly cold conditions and improved the nutritional status of many children entering school. 

They continue to offer food to homeless and poor people 5 days a week as they have since the beginning of the project. For these people this is the one hot meal a day they are able to receive in extreme weather conditions which was minus 33 Celsius when the accompanying photos were taken. Also in conjunction with the hot meal they are able to use the other services the Community Centre offers including free medical attention and free clothing and foot wear.

Solo mothers have a very difficult time in Mongolia especially if there is no family support. But even with providing a daily meal it is often not enough to sustain milk production for nursing mothers. These mothers and babies are monitored by the Health Clinic, which is in the same building and when required mothers receive extra rations and often food to take home. Despite this it often happens that for nutritional reasons the mother’s milk will dry up. When this happens the soup kitchen provides supplementary food for the child.

This project is well supported by you and we wanted to thank you very much for your donations in 2013 and early 2014.

Thank you for your support!

Thank you for your generous support and contributions to the Alice project in Boddishatta, India. This project, launched in 1994 by Italian teachers Valentino Giacomin and Luigina De Biasi, aims to provide school to 125 disadvantaged children with poor educational prospects in a community plagued by poverty, illiteracy, and a lack of infrastructure. The addition of a girls’ boarding school in 2010 provides 20 girls from remote villages with education, food, lodging, and health care.

In 2013, the donations Friends of Humanity has received has faciliated the branch school in Bodhisatta to welcome 20 girls, ranging in age from toddlers to teenagers, covering grades 1 through 6. At a monthly cost of 508 CHF, the school provided not only education, but shelter, three daily meals, clothing, laundry, toiletries, school supplies and medicine.

 The education of girls is one of the main purposes of the Alice Project, particularly in a traditionally male dominated society. Most girls come from very poor families, some are orphans. The school provides these girls from otherwise illiterate families not only with an opportunity for education, but a safe and nurturing environment in which to thrive. It empowers them with a foundation for a better future for themselves, as well as the opportunity to be a positive influence in the lives of others.

Your kind donations will help the girls to have a better and brighter future.

Thank you again, and we look forward to your continued support!

Updating for 2014

Dear Friend,

As you may know the project started in 2013 and aims at developing the education part of Maison Shalom activities.

Today, there is 233 students and the main objective is to welcome 450 students by 2015.

Friends of Humanity will still support Maison Shalom in 2014 so that to reach this objective.

In 2013, a high number of students attended school. This situation led to the opening of new classrooms. Indeed, the International school is facing a high demand and still need your donations.

 Funds are still needed for :

- the building of a volley-ball and football playground

- the purchase of 240 benches

- the purchase of 47 computers

- the purchase of 300 books.

 

We thank you very much for your donations.
