Our wish list to serve the poor

Every year, the people we serve at our various locations have needs that we do our best to meet.

Although we rise to these challenges willingly, the extra help we receive from you, our loyal, generous, and kind donors helps us make the most of our resources.

Over the years we have learned that the things that make the biggest difference to the people we help are the things they need the most.

With this in mind we ask for your help with donations that will be put to the best use.

Below we’ve included a list of the items we’re in greatest need of, along with the name and contact details of the relevant Ministry staff member.

We thank you in advance for your continued support.
