Smiley Pack-Phase 2During the late spring of 2021, Mer Hooys honored the donors who generously supported our Smiley Pack project by completing Phase II. Our staff, supported by the children, chose 4 families whose husbands were seriously injured, or killed, during the Fall 2020 war. The families We funded a month of formal training for the wives to become hairdressers/manicurists so that they could support their families while husbands recovered from their injuries. Upon graduating from training, Mer Hooys provided each woman with all of the necessary supplies and equipment to support their new profession, and paid one month of rent for the family. They also received food packs, household goods, clothes. Etc.Our fifth recipient was a young soldier whose life was saved from a bullet that deflected from a Bible in his pocket to his head, sparing his heart. After two surgeries, our social workers introduced him to the field of social work. This young man has now received a job with the department of social work, and our generous donors have made it possible for him to receive tuition for university next year and a laptop so he can pursue a degree in Social Work.Our girls who graduated from middle school this year and some of our staff enjoyed receiving hair styling and manicures from one of the women who benefited from our program. All of the families will visit the Center and meet our girls.We have taught our girls at Mer Hooys to pay it forward. In Smiley Pack phase 1 and 2, all our girls and staff were volunteers. They know they are very fortunate to receive the education, caring support, and a safe home at Mer Hooys. They know also not to take that for granted.Thank you to everyone who has made it possible for us to contribute in our small way to the relief efforts. God bless our donors, our staff, our children, and those families who are bravely moving forward even in the face of tragedy!Your support helps us keep our program alive, save lives, and give our girls enough respect and confidence in themselves to pay it forward. Based on ethical and moral norms, we rely on your understanding; we cannot post the photos of injuries of the soldiers. Donations can be made via the Donate Button on our FB page or from our website at www.mer-hooys.org. No fees are charged using the FB donate page. ...
