Update on July Appeal : Jovi's case

There’s a well known school of thought that has and continues to prevail among us till date. It says that “you do not have to share wealth to be charitable.. share your time and experience”. We at OH couldn’t agree more.  Because, at every hour of need, each one of you have come forth with your wealth, in the form of time, experience and generosity collectively put together to strengthen us towards each of our mission for the domestics in distress.
3 months ago,  Jovi’s (paralyzed Filipino maid) case was one such mission.  And you helped us pull through it.  Today, Jovi after having been repatriated home continues to receive the medical attention and family care she much needed. Because of the overwhelming support we received in donations, we will be able to provide Jovi financial support (KD 250, monthly) for the next 6 months to cover her medical and other incidental expenses.
Thank you everyone, for sharing the wealth of your time, experience and generosity.
Please watch this space for updates on her through these months.
