News from Asociatia Neemia, July 2018

: Posted by Steve Humphreys : Published, 06 Jul 2018

It is three years since building work started on Casa Neemia and a lot has been achieved through hard work and God’s repeated demonstrations of His ‘just in time’ provision. Now, documents have to be found, certificates have to be signed and inspections completed but, concurrent with the publication of these notes, the formal construction period should come to an end. Our thanks go to all those who have been involved with this project, whether by physical activity, financial contribution or prayer support.

The most difficult part of fulfilling the vision now begins – establishing the house rules and finding someone to take on the management of the house and its residents. Ideally we are looking for a mature couple with pastoral experience who can befriend the residents and work with those who are already building relationships with them.

Turning to our regular activities, we currently have good stocks of clothing, household goods and rice, and, to a lesser extent, oil and other food. We continue to help people who need these items. However, statutory increases in the minimum wage have resulted in higher business overheads and widespread price rises. Whilst this means increased operating costs for AN, the impact is most keenly felt by those who have no wage to increase. We do not keep records of those whom we are unable to help but the perception is that more people are asking for assistance with bills and other expenses, and more requests have to be declined.
