Calling for readers to help the needy
Daily I am faced with letters such as those written below. They are usually from people – particularly mothers – who are having a hard time trying to make ends meet.These letters have nothing to do with those people who receive help from us on a weekly or monthly basis, thanks to the kindness of corporate Barbados and quite a few individuals.It always eases the burden when you, our readers, respond. In addition, when you do, you open the door to receive multiple blessings.Once more, I am appealing on the behalf of these letter writers. Any assistance you can give would be much appreciated.Feel free to call our offices at 430-5494 to make any arrangements to lend assistance.Thanks for making the decision to lend a helping hand. – CHRISTINE

Mother needs some food for her children
I hope my letter finds you in good health.As I sit penning this letter, I am at my wits’ end as to the steps to take.Right now I find myself between a rock and a hard place.I know God never gives you more than you can handle. This is maybe the only reason I know that I can survive this.Although I work sometimes, it is amazing how fast the money can go between providing a happy home for your children, and paying the bills. This is why I am writing to you.I am having problems paying my bills but my main concern is feeding my children. I just need some assistance with some food items until I can weather this storm.If you or any of your readers or sponsors can provide me with some food vouchers, I would really be grateful.Many blessings for you and the great job you are doing. – ?
