Review for NAZARETH HOUSE APOSTOLATE, Taylorsville, KY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

They help Saloneans in need, plain and simple.

Nazareth House Apostolate receive over 85% of our charitable giving, chiefly, because it is a small organization with over 90% (think it was 96-7%?) of their donations going towards humanitarian aid and *not* frivolitiies.

Four years ago, we learned about NHA via a prayer workshop highlighting their work in the mission field of Sierra Leone. Many Saloneans (Sierra Leone citizens) do not have their basic needs of food, water, shelter and safety met. NHA distributes rice, but, often, are only able to distribute small quantities due to lack of funds and the greatness of the need over there.

Medication is distributed, but in regular doses via the operations manager, James. This prevents poverty convincing the aid recipient that it would be better to sell the medication rather than take it and care for themselves. Anti-worm medication is often distributed because clean water isn't regularly available and parasitic infestation occurs easily in such an environment.

I'm able to relate all of these details to you, because NHA is forthcoming with their missionwork. They are more than happy to show pictures of how your donations are being used.

The staff are very accessible for communication, via phone, email, their website, and Facebook.

Because their focus is on food, medicine, safe housing, and education, many of our secular friends have been comfortable donating to NHA. It is true that it is mission work of a monastery and church in Kentucky, but they distribute aid according to need. They help Saloneans regardless of Muslim or Christian.

Like I previously wrote: They help Saloneans in need, plain and simple.
