Thank you to all the Angels among us!
On Friday 30th we completed our LUXOR Light Gift of Giving Project and raised in total $1690 Australian in just one week! This is equivalent to approximately 10,660 Egyptian pound. The money is divided between two projects; one to provide chickens, flour and rice for a number of poor families in Qurna and the other to kick start a workshop for women where they are taught handicraft skills such as sewing and embroidery to be sold to tourists and European outlets and all funds will go directly to the women who do the work. This will enable not only an income for the families of the women concerned but will also bring an opportunity for the women to learn new skills.
I want to thank all those who gave from their hearts to help with this relief for these struggling families in West Bank Luxor. Our project with the women will continue and I will have more details available soon. Meanwhile I give my thanks to our donors from Australia, England, Slovenia, America and Spain and an extra special thank you to Yvonne M Herrington for organising the collection from within her contacts in the UK, together we make a great team!
This is only the beginning of our LUXOR Light Giving Projects, so stay tuned for our upcoming exciting opportunities to become a part of something that will leave an imprint on the hearts of many for many lifetimes ahead.
