BENEFITING: METRO MINISTRIES INTERNATIONAL INC
New York City: the land of the free and the dis-enfranchised, of the brave and the helpless, of the hopeful and the lost. This spring, I will embark on a four-month outreach programme with Metro Ministries to work with inner city children in New York.
For four months, I will work to empower at-risk and marginalised children.
For four months, I will provide practical help and hope to children by running children’s programmes, performing relief work, counseling, and making home visits.
For four months, I will find those lost in the roughest circumstances of gangs, crimes, drugs and prostitution.
For four months, I will need your generosity to reach out to the marginalised and at-risk who live in one of the richest cities in the world, but still cannot manage a full belly or a roof over their heads.
Only with your support is this going to happen - you are truly taking part in touching the lives of the most at-risk children in Brooklyn, New York. For those of you who have already so kindly given, I am writing by ways of an update, so that you can see how far your donation has progressed to date. I really cannot thank you enough!!
