Review for NAZARETH HOUSE APOSTOLATE, Taylorsville, KY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have had the privilege of visiting their base of operations in Taylorsville, KY and witnessed the hard work and dedication of this small group of people. I have helped Vicki, Mama Vicki, package up boxes for shipment to Sierra Leone; it is amazing the amount of stuff this woman can fit in to a USPS fixed postage box at $60 a box she needs to get as much as possible in each one. Now there is a weight limit she must contend with but she thinks of everything, "I use tuna packets to fill empty spots. They need protein." Truly no organization has done so much with so little. The supplies are walked into the remote villages where others will not go. It is dangerous and hard. Children are dying of worms, intestinal parasites! they would not die if they could get enough medicine. They built a compound in the safer town of Kabala employing local builders. "It is important that we buy what we need and employ who we need there to boost the economy." Vicki's makes one dollar work like two. She and her husband have given all to help these people, to love these people. They have cried and laughed with them, they have celebrated life and mourned death with them; they are family, we are family. Your donation will not only support what they already do: support a school for 300 students, support five villages, supply a medical clinic and employ a nurse, provide clean water (They hired native men who hand dug the well), etc. The long term goal is to provide the means by which these people will no longer need Nazareth House Apostolate. "Then", says Mama Vicki, "we will move on to another area in need."
