Theme: “You make the world a better place”
Coming to the end of 2019 Mary Open Doors takes this opportunity to once again extend a sincere and heartfelt thanks to Global Giving staff and administration, our donors and supporters local and international, staff/volunteers, administration and friends, clients and associates of MOD. Your support has been encouraging and inspiring, this journey would not have been possible without you all. In every community there is work to be done and in every nation there are wounds to heal, and in very heart there is love to do it.
The organization continues to be challenged, but with the determination of those committed to serving our women and children we continue to overcome these obstacles. A young woman and her two children assist by MOD has been successfully transitioned into the community. This is not an easy choice for these women some stepping out into the unknown, first time employed and paying bills on their own etc. MOD continues to give moral support and guidance to them until they are stable always considering the children because these choices and changes is even more traumatic for them. We have also accepted another family for shelter. Unfortunately, we have also had to ask that a family be removed from the establishment due to the lack of adhering to the rules of the organization. We pray that although she had to leave that we may have made some difference in her life.
QUOTE from client “I know I am no longer with Mary Open Doors but I still feel I am part with Mary open doors.”
Striving to continue to build our capacity for maximum impact we had representation at a workshop for agencies working with children. “Community Sensitization on Situational Awareness and Personal Safety Strategies” facilitated by Child Development Foundation on the safety of children especially those at risk from human trafficking.
We are hoping that for the next couple of months, we will be able to plan our final fundraiser to complete the purchase of the safe shelter. May God richly bless you all.
