Collateral Repair Project
September 20, 2012

This charity is indeed a project, for the improvement of the lives of people. I truly admire the creativity of the staff in finding solutions that focus on the personal development of the well-being of the persons they serve and that means as well respecting their need of remaining human beings. They do not treat them as faceless figures, but they welcome them and recognise their need to have a space to gather socially and to heal inside after the traumas that afflict them. Being refugees, having lost all that was previously familiar to them and in the aftermath of war, they are very vulnerable. The humanity that the staff shows to those who they assist is a precious commodity, as well as being impressed by the accountability of this charity, which responds in a detailed way to donors and gives concrete proof of the work they have done with the donations that have come to them. There is so little overhead, and so much done, that this deserving charity is the essence of what a charitable organisation should be, but often so many are not. They also are very grateful to their benefactors, even if the amount is not large, which is yet another aspect that is lacking in most of the organisations I have had experience with. I cannot reccommend this charity more highly.
