Back to the Villages
Social Worker Aliya from NG delivers supplies
Many of the people who live in the villages in the mountains around Pogradec, Albania are there because they have nowhere else to go. Although there are no jobs, and there is little community infrastructure, people stay, living in crumbling stone buildings with no plumbing, heat, or electricity. They stay because the villages are their home, or because they are old, or sick, or injured, or confined by challenging circumstances.
This spring, your donation made it possible for Nehemiah Gateway's social work team to visit 145 households in Pogradec and the surrounding villages of Alarup, Bratomire, Nixhavec, Cerrave, Geshtenjas, and Dardhas. Your support brought them meals and supplies. Your support also made it possible for them to see compassionate, trained social workers who helped them work toward solutions to their challenges.
In order to move toward dignified independence, people need to meet their most basic needs first. Your donation helped meet those needs for 145 households this spring.
You can continue to help the poor in Albania through this ongoing program here.
Thank you for your generosity.
All the best,
