1st MEF Fundraiser a Success

Our 1st fundraiser was held Wednesday, April 25 in the home of a supporter, who also sponsored the event catering. We were not sure what to expect since we had never held a fundraiser before. We had posters and a video about our work and our parther Service without Borders also had a poster. We had invited approximately 100 people and about half came. Many of those that could not come sent donations. We raised over $10,000 and donations are still coming in. We now have enough funds to finish construction of the dining hall/laundry, scholarships for 4 additional children, and a start on funding for the $68,000 classroom/library expansion. Our only faux pas was that we were so busy that we forgot to take pictures of the event. Thank you to all our donors!
