Mizpeh makes the most of what it is given. We may not be able to help a family with the building of their entire home but we can certainly do our part, purchasing bricks for example. Or help a family with their means of livelihood. One family indicated that a glass showcase would go far in helping to sell their cottage industry goods. Mizpeh remains undaunted.
RAMPANALGAS: A young mother of eight needs help to repair the flooring of the house, which is slowly sinking beneath their feet.
SANGRE GRANDE: This is actually a single board room for ten children. You have to admire their pride of place!
BALANDRA: Trying to complete living space for her family of four. This space does not include toilet facilities.
Some women are not able to leave their abusive situations and utilise Mizpeh as a transition house. So Mizpeh seeks them out and offers hope and help. Weekend makeovers are an ideal way to lift spirits with words of encouragement and pampering.
Hard lives and hard situations. It shows, but watch their tears and transformation.
Observing our getting to know you ice breaker. That was great fun and laughter.
When was the last time she got such a big hug?
Everyone hard at work and without their comfortable salon. Hair was washed leaning over laundry room sinks! Good fun.
The youngest of the lot but what a story to tell.
She came in tears with little daughter. Mother of eigjt. Abused the night before.
They saw the beauty in themselves and forgot their tears.
Big sister and big story too. Holding back the tears.
Telling her story. Before she ended there were tears flowing.
