As 2008 quickly draws to a close, we’d like to express our appreciation to our valued clients for their continued support and use of our services during the year.
Once again, rather than giving gifts or hosting functions, we’ve chosen to mark our thanks to our clients by making a financial contribution to help people in need.
This year, we have pledged to provide funds towards the development of a new orphanage, called SHALOM HOME, in Madurai in southern India. Director’s Geoff and Karen Hales, had the opportunity to travel to Madurai in October to meet the people behind the orphanage (along with 12 orphan boys they have already taken in), visit the site and view the concept plans. Geoff and Karen were moved by the obvious needs, but also impressed by the vision, commitment and integrity of those behind the orphanage.
With donations made by BARNEWALL RESOURCES and the Hales family, theynow have 40% of the funds required for Stage 1 of the orphanage. Although this is sufficient to get work underway, there’s still much more required; so if you, or you company would like to assist by providing a donation towards building SHALOM HOME, please contact us. NB At this stage donations are not tax-deductable.
