Year 2016 Accomplishment Report
In year 2016, Mary Queen of All Nations Missionary Alliance celebrated its 32nd year anniversary of its existence as an organization. With your love and generosity, we continued our work of Love and Mercy, reaching out to all those who need assistance to be able to have a better and healthier life, to have an education, and live in a better home, and become self-sufficient to be able to stand on their own. In all of our work, we have behind us, our good Lord Jesus, Blessed Mary and Blessed Joseph. They give us the strength, patience and perseverance, all the help we need to be able to do all that needs to be done. Without them, we would not know how we can possibly do all that we have done. The good Lord surely is behind all these. Somehow, our fund was stretched out.
In Uganda, through Fr. Pontius Bandua, your generosity helped 20 high school students have an education, which would not be possible if we haven’t reached out to them.
In Kenya, 8 high school students were given a chance to go to school through Sr. Josephine Kwenga who wrote, “Families of these students live in slums and rural areas of Kenya, with very little income or no income at all. With the help of the school fees subsidy received from your organization, we have been able to reach out to 8 families and supported one child from each family.” Actually, funds for 10 students were sent but due to increase in tuition fees, only 8 were assisted.
