Update on the situation in Burundi, Maison Shalom

Maison Shalom, urgently needs our help.

Shalom School finds herself in a very critical situation today.
The political and security situation in Burundi has indeed very much worsened in the last few weeks, and now the directo ofhe school in on the current government's black-list, for her exceptional involvement in the defense of her Burundian peers, her "children" as she calls them.

She has to live hidden, while continuing to follow the activities of Maison Shalom as well as the political events. The only people, today, who dare visit the sick, the prisoners, the wounded, the children, all victims of this tense situation and of the violence that prevails in the country, are the collaborators of Maison Shalom.


Their mission is to gather and redistribute goods of first necessity (mainly food) to families, but most importantly to give psychological support to parents whose children have been victims of this violence.

Friends of Humanity  Maison Shalom, but we are also in great need of your support and your solidarity, in order for her not to be left alone. The situation is most serious, for her as well as for her fellow Burundians.

The direcor called musonly a few days ago from her hiding place, ended the conversation by saying: "All is grace for he or she who believes. Myself, I pray for the grace to soon return to my country."

Caring for the homeless of Ulaanbaatar!

Most Kind and Generous Donors,

Please rejoice in the fact that your most kind generous support has made it possible for us to continue our activities of caring and serving the homeless of Ulaanbaatar, now into the twelfth year since first opening its doors in 2003.

During the cold six months of winter the soup kitchen averages around 80 people per day and the cost of utilities are at its highest. The six months of winter is financially the most expensive period. Fortunately, for all us living in Ulaanbaatar this winter 2014/2015 has been a mild winter compared to the years before. But even now, in the beginning of March 2015 we are still in the double digit minus degrees.

As a soup kitchen it is an ongoing expense requiring constant financial sustenance. As the economic state in Mongolia is in dire straits much of the funding for the soup kitchen relies on small individual donations.

For the beneficiaries, the soup kitchen is a haven of warmth and kindness for their one hot meal of the day. For most of them it would be impossible to survive without the safety net of the soup kitchen. Since the soup kitchen is so very vital for their survival, the beneficiaries of the soup kitchen guard and regard the soup kitchen as their personal turf and protect it with animal like territorial instinct against homeless people new to the area. As organizers, we constantly have to talk them out of such attitude and behavior against other homeless people new to our soup kitchen.

Such is the way of life here at the Soup Kitchen!

Thanking you all always and with love and prayers,

Tsenla
