I also had a wonderful holiday like yours. Love you always, Esnath Nyakuyaka" "Dear Friends ant the Parish of Our Lady and St Benedict Ampleforth, With great joy did we receive US $550 from your collection on World Aids Day and another Fundraising event. Thank you so much for it. This amount will go towards medical expenses of our children. We are indeed so privileged to have so many people to support us. Without them we could not offer a "Home" to so many children who have been rejected by their own extended family due to different circumstances. God seems to have a soft spot for our young people, as up to now we have been able to offer them a home for the last 100 years, even though we are often concerned, not knowing how to pay the many bills for the next month. God bless you for your generosity as we have been blessed. With love from all of us, Sr. Gabriel"
