Alloway Library continues to collect recyclable beverage containers to raise money in support of Tahaddi, a compassion ministry working in the shantytowns of
Tahaddi, the Arabic word for “challenge,” serves the poor in three ways: through medical care, literacy programs and prison work. Currently the organization is seeking $7500 to furnish 2 new classrooms.
The medical dispensary provides free access to primary care, offering family medical consultations; medicines; lab work as well as practical and financial assistance when hospitalization is required.
Tahaddi also provides moral and spiritual support to women’s prisoners during weekly visits and provides inmates with basic necessities, Bible studies and English classes. In a unique arrangement, warm sweaters knitted by the prisoners are given to the shantytown children in the literacy classes.
