Operation Hope

Another lovely Saturday spent volunteering at Hope House preparing 400 winter bags for the workers on the farms in Wafra......preperations are being made for Esther's Attic which will be located in Hope House pictured below. Gently used items will be sold and earnings will be used to benefit the many programs offered by Operation Hope.

More donations...

One of the current projects going on is helping the maids living at their embassy's shelters. They aim to provide each with a toiletry bag containing a toothbrush, toothpaste, boady soap shampoo and sanitary napkins. There is an estimate of over 1,000 such shelter residents in need of these basic toiletries. The estimate for each bag is 4KD. You can help by sponsoring 1, 2 or as many as you want.

You can also purchase and bag the items and bring them to OH or directly pay the wholesell merchant for the number of workers you wish to sponsor. OH also needs racks and hangers to display clothing for Esther's Attic, garbage bags to transport items, blankets and winter items.

Join Operation Hope on Friday, November 18, 2011 at the Holiday Bazaar located in the Salwa Al-Sabah Theater and Hall from 10:30 a.m.- 9 p.m. There will be items for sale, a 1 KD entrace fee will be charged.
