2016 has been a hard year for Pure Heart as we’ve gone through growing pains. But we have also accomplished so much! As a new year starts, we’ve been reviewing the past year and have been amazed at all that has happened.
With the income of an average US family we have managed to:
- Feed the Hungry:
With your help, we served right around 73,000 home cooked meals.
- Visit the Sick:
With your help we met the medical needs of the children we work with and their families as we could.
Medical assistance included:
- Ambulance / emergency rides (availability 24/7/365)
- Dr. visits
- ER visits
- Food, toiletries, ransister radios and fans for patients
- Surgeries: 1 eye, 2 dental, 2 babies, 1 hernia, 1 ruptured disc, and 1 foot.
- Clothe the Naked:
With your help we clothed over 3,100 children.
With your help we gave out 35 scholarships. 10 children graduated to Kindergarten in the Public School system. We also had a kid’s club of around 60 kids in the neighborhood on Saturday afternoons. We were able to witness the graduation of Reina Tiffer from Medical School. She was a little 8 year old girl in our program when we very first started.
With your help we celebrated the birthdays and Christmas’ of 225 children with parties, cake, piñatas, games, presents, and school supplies for the upcoming year.
We have helped with the costs and the services of 11 funerals.
We have helped with shoring up and roofing of several of our neighbor’s houses in the community.
- Solved Problems:
Everything from marriage counseling, rebellious teen counseling, to fixing transportation, water and electrical problems. We are called to be problem solvers, not problem pointer outers!
- Love: (Most important)
With your help children could witness first hand unconditional love.
