To all friends of Jeel al Amal

On January 11th the board of Jeel al Amal approved the budget for 2009. The fixed costs of Jeel al Amal amount to €206.000 annually. This money has to come from organizations like World Vision and McCabe, from friends and churches.

The biggest head crusher are the salaries: per annum €109.745 or €9.145 per month. This is for 33 employees who on average receive €277 monthly. Food for boys who live in the home is estimated at €47.140 per year. That is €906 per week or €129 per day.  

See the budget as PDF.

If a child needs help, you have to give it. Out of that attitude Alice and Basil Sahhar began Jeel al Amal in 1972. Living day by day from the hand to the mouth. They trusted that people would fill that hand.

The piece of land on which the new buildings arose is called in the register: “Al Aisa”, which means: “From Jesus” Alice used to say: “It is his house. He will take care of the children. We only need to do our job”. Her confidence did work for almost 36 years already.
