On behalf of the 175 Save-A-Life patients, thank you (or in Hausa, ‘nagode’)! Many of you bought beautiful Nigerian items as Christmas gifts – for others or yourselves! The ‘hot’ items were the nativity ornaments made out of tin sand and the jewelry. There are many greeting cards and bracelets still available; please let me know if you want to buy any. The sale raised over $600 to send to Faith Alive for the Save-A-Life program.
We’re also SO grateful to those of you who are sending in money as donations above and beyond what you’ve already given. Dr. Chris will be delighted to spend the money for extra medications – mostly antibiotics – for SAL patients suffering from opportunistic infections like tuberculosis and pneumonia.
May you all be blessed in extra measure this Christmas season.
