Friday's Featured Child - A Holly House Child

Meet Ann!
Ann is 12 years old and in standard 7.  Her birthday is August 11.  Ann's father tries to find work as a casual laborer and her mother is unemployed.  Due to the extreme poverty of this family, they could not properly care for Ann and therefore she came to live at Holly House where she could have food, shelter and an education.  Ann enjoys reading story books.  Her best subjects are math and science and she dreams of being a doctor someday. HH sponsorship is $30/mo for full sponsorship or $15 for co-sponsorship.  Can you be Ann's sponsor and friend?

Please visit's Child Sponsorship - HH page for more information.

Holly House Gets a Fresh Coat of Paint!

Thanks to a friend of one of Galilee's long time supporters, Holly, students living at Holly House are now enjoying freshly painted rooms!  Just look at these before and after pictures and you will appreciate what a gift this really is for these students!
Dirty and dingy walls surrounded the students.
The courtyard also had cracked and peeling paint.

So the painters went to work!
What a surprise was in store for our students!
Clean, bright walls!
What an uplifting improvement!
Even the courtyard looks so much better!
 Many thanks to this donor who provided such cheer through this fresh paint!
