52 Girls Will Be Homeless !!! WHO WILL BE THE NEXT TEAM PLAYER?


A Celebration of Women Foundation Inc.'s founder received a message, urgent in nature, that her friend, Chairwoman of and NGO in Pakistan had just lost their funding, without notice.

With this critical situation, she continued to explain that they would have to close their doors of the school, one that was housing 52 young women. Some of these women were victims of violence, and had already lived through extreme cruel situations in life. What would they do now, if lead back out into the streets?

HOPE DEVELOPMENT ORGANIZATION is in URGENT NEED of $5000.00. * Not a large sum according to North American standards in finance. Yet, for Dr. Nazli and her girls, this amount of funding would carry them through December 2011, allowing for a re-structure of that is in the works.


A Celebration of Women,
I want to make an apology to those who have stood beside Hope Development. Due to our critical financial situation due to the lack of funds, Hope Development will need to close its doors at this time. We understand the hardship of others, are everywhere. At this time, HDO has a zero donation rate and we have no Foundation offering to help or send donations to this Pakistani NGO Organization.

On Monday, we will be sending our staff home to find other means of employment. Please keep them in your prayers.

I am forever grateful to you for your prayers, your love and kind concerns for HDO.
Regards, love and peace
