Listed below are things that our ministry needs, but doesn’t have the funds to purchase. There are both physical items and intangible gifts of time or talent or resources that will bless our ministry and further the work of the Gospel. Have a look and contact us to provide these needed gifts! Please bring items to the Women of Hope Office at 187 Stateline Rd. E, Suite 17, Southaven, MS 38671. Call for further instructions at 901.775.9757.
We are always in need of the following items for our Hope Shop in Sierra Leone:
- Ibuprofen (Advil) – 500 tab bottles
- Acetaminophen (Tylenol) – 500 tab bottles
- Baby formula – small cans of powder only (not liquid, and under 1 lb.)
- Disposable razors
- Small hand cream tubes
- Toothpaste (4.6 oz.)
- Jewelry items
- Board books for children
* These items will be used to stock our Hope Shop, where women in the program can “buy” these commonly needed items by attending a variety of our trainings and earning tickets for participation.
• Laptop computers (newer – to replace aging outdated computers in Sierra Leone)
• MS Office Software (2010 or newer)
• Photocopiers – one standard and one small
• Copy paper – a case or reams
We give each woman in the program who gives birth a small token that our staff in Sierra Leone use to show the women that we care while giving them a little tangible help with supplies for their child.
We need the following supplies packed in a gallon-sized ziplock. Here are the items to be included in all the baby packets:
- 1 receiving blanket
- 2 cloth diapers
- 4 diaper pins
- 1 pair of infant rubber pants
- tube of vaseline
We really appreciate it if the baby packets could be packed in a trunk weighing no more than 50 lbs so that we can take them with us as luggage on our next trip and store them in the office in Sierra Leone to be distributed. Many stores sell inexpensive, but sturdy plastic trunks that would be great.
Time and Talent:
• Graphic design for some materials we need to produce
• Volunteers – we always have a need for more help!
• Frequent flyer miles – this would help us IMMENSELY in our travels and save a LOT of money!
