Dear Friends of the Mission,
We would like to express our sincere thanks for the integration of indigent students of our Metropolis into the Educational Sponsoring program. Without this aid, these young people would never be able to study owing to the prevailing economic hardships that seem to have no end.
It is sad to see youths who possess the learning capabilities required to continue into higher education have their expectations for a better future cut off due to the economic crisis.
We have many examples because of the large number of students who graduate each year from our 70 schools asking for financial support. It is practically impossible for us to respond to everyone, this is why we are deeply grateful to you for undertaking the “sacred duty” of helping these young people to continue with hope and courage this difficult struggle of life.
The great thing is that with your selection, this financial support is offered through the Orthodox mission and not by means of other entities. As we are informed, there is a wide range of organizations that may well be international in scope but lack the seal and guarantee of the Orthodox Church.
May the grace of our Lord protect you all.
