On Tuesday August 21, 2012 I had the opportunity to meet Ms. Effendi, Executive Director, Ms. Ramirez Resource Aid Manager and other staff of The House of Charity. I was very impressed with the awards The House of Charity received for laboring to meet the needs of others. Learning of all they do to help others was proved this is a very compassionate organization especially the love and aid to the children. THC truly helped my church during Educational Resource Distribution Day, as we helped the children in our church prepare for a new school year. Items received from THC helped those families less fortunate. THC is a GREAT organization that makes a difference not to any particular organization, race, religion but to anyone and everyone.

Our organization received school supplies and hygiene kits from the House of Charity which were distributed to the refugee families around Houston. Our local organization provides relief services and support to Houston's growing refugee population. The refugee families in Houston arrive with little more than the clothes on their backs and all the help and support they can get is much appreciated. My experience with House of Charity was more than pleasant. I got to meet with some of the children who are here for treatment, and they were a delight to meet with! You can't help but walk away with tears. The people running the organization were sweet and courteous - and very organized. The work that House of Charity does is not easy, and I am glad to see that there is an organization doing good for the forgotten children around the world.

From Asociacion Peruana de Houston (APH). The House of Charity recently donated back to school supplies for distribution to the community we support in Houston; they contributed to our Back to School program and allowed us to reaching our mission statement and commitment to our community in Houston.

As the Founder/Director of Fertile Ground "Christian Transformation Center", a non-profit organization in Houston,TX. I have found that the House of Charity far exceeds all expectaions. The services they provide are of maximum benefit to those served In both Health and Social Justice.Fertile Ground Houses and provides services for Men and Women returning from prison. This population of people return to their communities with many many needs. My affiliation with the House of Charity has enhanced my ability to serve multitudes in the arena of Restorative Justice. We participate in the Better Homes, Chicken Day, Sweety, and Hope Day Programs provided ny this terrific organization.

My child was provided Medical Treatment for 10+ years and underwent more than 50 Surgical Procedures (some very complex ones) thanks to The House of Charity and particularly its Executive Director Hashmat Effendi. All the medical care was organized by House of Charity and provided without any costs to the family. God bless Hashmat and her organization! Amen!

It was nice to see Azima on face book.
She looks tall in her new legs. You have done such a wonderfull job, which no one can imagine that in such a short time House of Charity managed all things perfectly.
When she was travelling independently to Houston, I was a bit worried that how would she manage it, but azima was so confident & relax about all this. Azima told me that it was your suggestion to travel alone to be more independent & tackle her affairs by herself. My family salutes ur vision.
Good job House of Charity
