Review for Nazareth House Apostolate, Taylorsville, KY, USA
I have been involved with NHA since 2008 as we both shared the same mission to help improve lives in Sierra Leone as they were recovering from the brutal civil war. They, through NHA, me through One Love Foundation and EWB, both working in Sierra Leone. To help in this area of the world was particularly challenging and we formed a friendship in a very small but powerful way to overcome those challenges to try to reach the poorest of the poor. To be successful in CONTINUING to reach the poorest of the poor, to rise above the challenges despite corruption, theft, greed, lack of funding, etc., that is the true beauty of NHA and that is unique. The money collected is buying uniforms, food, education, medical supplies, and I can attest that NHA is succeeding. "Small-small" as they say in Salone, but with so much heart, following through to the very end. Shoes on children's feet, rice when it's needed the most. James Mansaray is truly trustworthy and that is very hard to find but it makes all of this possible. In the right hands, bigger can be better. I believe and support the work being done by NHA. I wish they had the millions of dollars of support that many other organizations working in Sierra Leone have but don't use for the mission intended. I ultimately had to admit defeat in my own mission and had to close the doors, but NHA continues on and pray they receive the support that will reach those that need it the most.
