“Care is the ingredient that keeps true friendships alive despite separation, distance, or time. Care gives latitude to another person and gets you past the dislikes and annoyances. Quite simply, caring sustains love.” ~Sara Chidre
Impact Sierra Leone’s core mission is reducing poverty but to do so with care, concern, and compassion. During the month of September, we were happy to bring smiles to 16 economically reserved seniors in Glenarden Maryland. We were happy to join City of Glenarden Mayor, Honorable Cashenna A. Cross to personally visit some amazing senior residents gifting them with hygiene and beauty items. We are filled with joy to give back as a Community Partner in achieving the mayor’s mission: “Moving the Mission Forward.”
The seniors were greeted with smiles of hope, messages of dignity and a mini gift basket filled with toiletry/beauty items that we assembled as a team. For some of these heart-warming senior citizens, this was perhaps the only visit they received that day. The seniors we met expressed gratitude to the mayor and our team and even joined us for few photos. Several of them personally testified that we made their day special. ISL’s Seeds of Life Program made this outreach activity possible. Thanks to the generosity of so many who contributed to our August Donation Drive Day of Hope, blessing seniors in need of necessities became a reality. Additionally, we achieved the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal of Good Health and Well Being. We look forward to spreading more hope in the US and in Africa as the Holidays approach. Hand in hand, we are continuing our relationship with the Glenarden community and the mayor’s office so that we can spread more hope.
ISL aims to bring hope and smiles to many communities across the globe through our acts of kindness. Together we are achieving the sustainable development goals: Reduce Poverty, Good Health and Well Being, and Quality Education
