Year 2015 appears to be a challenging year, not only for Shelter but also for the overall market and conditions existing in the country today.
As an NGO, we are definitely not spared but we have persevered and worked very hard through the difficult economic situations in the past before, and survived. However, it was not only because of our strength that we stood through those times, but it is really because of the unwavering support that we still received from friends and supporters alike. It is with great determination, effort and courage that we will strive to work even harder to fulfill our calling in our work and to make sure that all our children continue to receive the best in terms of everything needed.
Hence we are stepping up with our efforts to promote even more aggressively some of our fund-raising events and activities for example our year-end Children’s calendars which is currently in the pipe-line pending final artwork and eventual printing. Please do have a look at our attached order form and feel free to include a support by ordering some.
