Thank you for helping feed homeless teenagers

 

Thank you to everyone who has supported our project in the last year.  It has been an exciting year, but each excitement has brought its own difficulties.  We organised for 11 boys to be released from prison under a government amnesty, but this meant more mouths to feed.  We are very grateful to everyone who has helped us keep our commitment not to turn anyone away who is in need.
This task gets harder at this time of year, as, quite apart from our regular residents, more homeless teenagers come to the house for food and a bed when the weather turns cold.  We usually have mattresses and camp beds in every corner through the winter.  
Very soon we hope to launch a new car hire business, to be run as a social enterprise.  This will help us give our young people vocational training and will help us pay the bills.  The first car has been donated for this wonderful scheme by the European Commission.  We would give you a picture of it, but apparently it will take two months for all the paperwork to be done to finalise the gift.  

We try our hardest to be self-sufficient, but unfortunately, we do still need help to buy food for our young people.  Can you help us give them a feast to remember for their New Year celebrations?
 
Thank you!
