Review for NAZARETH HOUSE APOSTOLATE, Taylorsville, KY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

NHA provides a primary education to 300+ students in Sierra Leone, paying local teachers, and providing them with one classroom and education materials and uniforms. NHA provides food and medicine to a number of villages and families in places ranging from Kabala to Freetown. They provide assorted other humanitarian aid as needed.

NHA is run by Vicki and Father Seraphim, who are street savvy and practical and want to make a difference in small communities and maintain a personal connection with those they help. They strive to make very smart decisions about how to spend donation money and use it wisely.

Two things that initially attracted me to NHA and continue to be true:
- This work is the charitable output of a cloistered religious organization based out of rural Kentucky. NHA has essentially zero overhead and all money donated for the work in Africa actually makes it there.
- While this is the mission of NHA, it's not "missionary", it's about helping others. This is not a crusade, or even an overt attempt to convert non-Christian folks in Sierra Leone. The organization gets along quite well with the local Muslim communities and receives their support.
