Greeting Loyal Supporter and Followers!

Complements of the season to you all!  As the year 2019 is coming to a successful end, our Fall/Winter activities are in full swing. Thanks to your kind donations received, we continue to offer our participant the very best we can. It only by your helping hand, we are able to do so much. With your gifts we are able to carry over of our STEM projects to the fall and winter. 

Our team continue with many of the activities of the summer, such as trips, athletics, dance, music, archery. However, due to the cold winter weather we have moved to more indoor activities. One of the recent trips was a trip for the children to the bowling alley, where some of the children got to try their hand controlling a bowling bowl, to knock down the pins... Although we are observing a mid-winter recess, we look forward to an exciting new year of program.

A very nice “Family Night at the Movies” was held for the children and their parents. The parents assisted to organize the event, and contributed a nice menu of food and snacks that were sold before, during intermission, and after the movie to offset some the expenses for future planned trips and cultural activities.

Many of the activities of the summer, are academic base but not totally. We have 135 kids enrolled to entertain and more importantly, to teach skills that will give them a more rounded life as grow older. As you know we are a cultural enrichment options that we continue to offer children of the inner city exposure to the arts and dance that they would not normally be exposed to.  The participants will have a chance to display their skills learned in Winter Recital coming up at the end of January. The recital will include children performing modern dance, karate, steel pan solos, archery, and singing to name a few activities. To be able to do that we have hired specialized instructors to give the children the best opportunities to gain a taste if new skills from their classes. Your support made all this possible! Please remember IMANI HOUSE as charity whose cause can be supported and promoted.

Since this is a joyous time of the year for gift giving and merriment the children received small gifts of toys and food during their recent Christmas party.   What better way to celebrate the children's achievements, and to welcome in the New Year! Some of the many other activities are further detailed in our Newsletter is attached to this report.

On that note, I would like to close this update and take the time for the IMANI HOUSE management and staff to once again, to wish you, our friends and supporters, very Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah, Happy Kwanza, and a Prosperous, Healthy New Years! Hope to see you in 2020 with another exciting update!

Liberian Family Health Care & Education Update
By Bisi Ideraabdullah - Bisi Ideraabdullah

 
Greetings friends,

It is time for Imani House, Inc. to update you on the latest actives and thank you for all your continual support. Over the past three months your contributions have help to sustain our Liberian Family Health Care and Education initiatives in one Africa’s poorest economies...Liberia.

Our health related programs targets mainly Liberian women and infants, who represents a highly underserved population in the country. During this reporting period the Liberia was hit with a strike by health workers due delayed salary payments. for staff working in governmental health facilities. Imani House Clinic staff were not affected but it did tax our resources as more women and children searched for quality health care during the work stoppage at our doors. Our patients were in dire need of health care doing the “go slow strike” in Liberia as IMANIH HOUSE remained open and accessible to many. Your past support is an important part of the reason our clinic survived for the last 25 years and we appreciate YOU!

Since our last report we served more than 3,000 mothers and children in our Child and Maternal Healthcare facility. We are now starting to expand our clinic services to surroundings communities to give opportunities to mothers and children  to be screened diabetis, high blood presure, prenatal check without having to come into the clinic.. This is done from our Ambulance for now. and is a resumption of our initiative to take heath to the community.

Our Women's Health Education Manual Project continued in September as new school year was launched. We have two sites currently that we will continue to teach primarily our market woman who make up the bulk of the students in our classes that resumed in September after the long vacation.

Training of high school and junior high students which had been reported on in the past, is yet to start. However, we will re-startup the teen peer educators training in Monrovia Consolidated schools, The plan as in the past is to provided workshops on proper waste disposal and sanitation, infectious disease prevention, reproductive health and other health related topics as we did during the last school year. The Health Manual project still continues, as we to do outreach and health talks in communities as well, providing vital health information to adults

We ask you please to continue to partner  with us to provide these valuable services, or join us if you being introduced for first tine visitor to the IMANI HOUSES.PROJECT. I hope you will make our cause your cause!

Sincerely


Bisi Ideraabdullah

Executive Director
