As we move forward consistently striving to assist our community through educating and restoring families affected by domestic violence, we must also continue to be thankful to those who have open their hearts to giving to our cause, to our long-term and short-term donors and supporters we extend this simple word of THANKS with gratitude our appreciation to you and your families.
We have had two new client, one client in transition, assisting 1 hiv+ client in final stages, counselling and education outreach, and assistance to single mothers with school supplies. These are only few of the many ways in which our small but effective organization continues to reach out to those in need. Women from MOD has team up with local agency TEP(Toucan Education Program) where they were given an opportunity to be involved in a cultural exchange program which brought them the much needed financial assistance. This will give one of them the help needed to start the process of transitioning from MOD into society stronger and better prepared physically mentally and spiritually. Also, on July 14th 2018, MOD with assistance of Karolina a TEP volunteer hosted its first annual “Summer Strings Benefit Concert” fundraiser geared towards our goal of purchasing our shelter by the end of 2018. After purchasing the shelter we are hoping to make this event our yearly signature event to assist with the sustainability of the organization. Big thank-you to TEP Staff and volunteers. We are in the process of coordinating a fundraising raffle also slated for December 2018. We must not lose hope, so we count on your prayers and support in any form to continue to do this work.
Lastly the work that we do at Mary Open Doors with your generous support has received recognition from the United States Embassy Belize in collaboration with the Women’s Department through our co-founder Anna Silva, who was awarded woman of the year 2018. It is only with your help that our work can be done and our doors continue to be open to those in need.
