In these moments I am taking the opportunity and honor to be working with such a prestigious Organization and transparent as it is the House of Charity of Houston, TX. The work they are doing with its program of Resource Aid Global is extraordinary. Breaking down the barriers of the distances, culture and language. The House of Charity is bringing humanitarian assistance over the globe. It is amazing all the help that Mrs. Hashmat Effendi has the ability to coordinate to help the neediest children no matter where you are. From my point of view personal and professional level, I would whish to have more organizations such as The House of Charity or more human beings as Hashmat Effendi to fight so much poverty and sad circumstances that exist in this world.

"The House Of Charity" is simply an amazing organization that cares for the surrrounding comunity agencies that are dedicated to helping those who are less fortunate. Each school kit donated will help one of our Children here at "The Bridge Over Troubled Waters" to be prepared for that exciting first day of school! The Hygiene kits will help aid our victims that enter emergency shelter with no personal items, after fleeing for safet. The staff, clients, and volunteers appreciate all of the support that is recieved from " The House Of Charity" and look forward to a long lasting relationship.
