Damaris House – May Newsletter

 

My dear friends,

This year, May has been for us the month of Orthodox Easter, providing us with the opportunity to gather together and celebrate with the presence of past participants who came with their children to join us in celebration. We would like to express our gratitude to O.U.R. Rescue, the organization that sponsored our festive meals and allowed us to experience some cherished family moments once again. Additionally, we had the chance to remind our beneficiaries of the significance of Easter and share with them its message.

Another piece of wonderful news is that three of our girls have begun job training after successfully completing phase I of the Recovery Program. This transitional phase prepares them for future employment and brings them closer to independence. It is also a time for them to save the money needed for the next phase of transitional housing. Meanwhile, the rest of our girls continue their training in the skill development program, and all of them have progressed to the level of worker, no longer being trainees. This training enables them to earn an income and make plans for their future as well.

Your tangible support is always greatly appreciated, and we rely on it to sustain our work, meeting not only the daily needs of our girls but also preparing them for a promising future. The cost of the job training program amounts to $12,000, equating to $1,000 per month. Additionally, during this period, we acquire supplies for the Skill Development Program such as leather, clay, jewelry materials, and fabric, which amount to $1,000. I cannot emphasize enough that every gift, no matter how small, is incredibly valuable and can make a significant impact.

Thank you for considering this prayerfully.

Please join us in prayer for:

  • The success of the job training program for our girls.
  • Continued provision for the construction of the safe house.
  • Overall protection and safety for the ministry.

Love in Christ,
Dina
