Filling The Gap For Those In Need

GlobalGiving

Quarterly Report

7th August, 2019 

Mary Open Doors started by trying to fill the gap for women ready to leave their DV situation. Realizing they had nowhere to go once a case was reported on the weekend sparked the need for a safe shelter for women and their children.  This became our goal. A plan was initiated 4 years ago to purchase a safe shelter.

Today, as we come closer to accomplishing that goal, we are approaching the final leg of our journey, to purchase our safe shelter, we are grateful and always will be grateful to those who have helped us over the years.  Iseemed slow but in God’s time and with your support and continued encouragement we are able to preserver and keep pushing on. Today we have raised Bze. $43,000 to the total cost of 55,000 to purchase the shelter. We have a remaining balance of Bze 12,000.

We continue to assist women and their children in our community and the country. Over the last three months we have housed clients with their children from rural Cayo, Belize District and Dangriga. One client is in the process of leaving to get back into society being employed she will be registering her children into school with the help of the Women’s Department SI. Working together as a team to assist this client has proven tobe very effective.

Clients Quote “realizing there is a place like this has taken a load off my shoulders I felt like something lifted. I always wanted to leave but I never knew a place like this existed to help, a friend told me about this place and I said I will try. I thank GOD now everyday for the help I am receiving. It’s the best I have felt in the 10 years living with DV. There is no way I am every turning back.”

The organization continue to progress through intensive capacity building training provided by the US Embassy Belize andattended by staff and Board of director.  A successful raffle fundraiser was held in July all proceeds (BZE $5,000) went to the purchase of the shelter. Through all our challenges we remain committed and continue to service our community with your generous support and prayers. A heartfelt and sincere thanks to all our friends and supporters.
