British Embassy Mattress Donation.

Operation HOPE was blessed with a precious donation of mattresses from the British Embassy of Kuwait earlier this week which was passed on to the Sri Lankan Embassy for the sleeping arrangements of the ladies at the embassy shelter.

Embassy official Mr. Aruna Dasanayake along with other staff were available to receive this donation.

Once again, our deepest appreciation for the kind and generous donation initiated by Ms Maria. Fernandes from the embassy and allowing Operation HOPE to be the beneficiaries of this donation.

Indeed a blessing more precious than you can ever imagine!

Little actions can make a big difference.

Operation HOPE was recently blessed by a very young volunteer - little Tanvi Shetty only 9 years old. Tanvi visited Operation HOPE with her dad 2 weeks ago to drop off some donations. Touched by our mission, last Saturday she asked her dad to drop her off at Esther's Attic so she could volunteer with us while her dad was running some errands.

What a wonderful and productive way indeed to spend a Saturday morning! And when leaving for the day, she has offered to bring her friends along next week. Tanvi, we applaud you for your kind and caring heart!

As an African proverb goes, "If you think you are too small to make a difference, you haven’t spent a night with a mosquito".

A special shout out goes to the folks at the British School of Kuwait that put together 25 bags of toiletries to support Operation HOPE for its ongoing toiletries initiative for an embassy shelter.

Every bag collected, every bag donated continue to matter, helping us meet our target number of 300 bags!

Thanks Ms Patricia for the donation drop off earlier this week.  

Schools in Action: Toilteries Donation pour into HOPE House from ASK

The amalgamated efforts of an energetic group coupled with the drive to serve Kuwait’s neediest, resulted in the collection of 75 Packs of toiletry hampers by Ms Lauren and her group of volunteers from the American School of Kuwait.  Donations were dropped off at HOPE house earlier this week as we continue to work towards our current toiletries initiative for an embassy Shelter. We deeply appreciate you guys!
