Community to the Bishop John E. Knight Golden Age Home Project (JEK Project).
By now you should be very familiar with the Bishop John E. Knight Golden Age Home Project (JEK Project) and we hope that you would have taken the opportunity to visit our website at www.bjekhomeandmission.com. If you have not done so we encourage you to do so now.
For the last 4 months we have shared with you about the projects history, the numerous challenges encountered and the services that will be offered at the facility. We also provided a number of pictures to show the progress of the work and hope that you are as excited as we are about this project and how it will serve our community and enhance the Moravian Church’s Missionary Outreach Programme in the Antigua Conference.
Please help us to fulfill this divine Christian mandate by making a generous donation to this worthwhile project. This will allow us to get closer to the completion of the construction of the Nursing Home.
We have a duty to the seniors in our community. The number of seniors who need some type of assistance due to advancing age and related factors is increasing exponentially. Longer life expectancies, greater financial need, health care costs, and isolation from family members are exacerbating this problem. Please help us to help them.
Our Vision is “To be the premier caring ministry for the elderly within Antigua & Barbuda while promoting their health, safety, as well as physical, spiritual, mental and social well-being of our residents.”
Our mission is “To provide compassionate and affordable elderly care in a purpose built, supportive and nurturing environment, fostering independence and offering meaningful activities.”
To accomplish these objectives we need your support, therefore we are making an appeal for contributions to take us to the finish line. There is an urgent need to raise approximately EC$1,009,000 (US$375,000). These funds will be used as per the following: medical equipment and supplies – US$50,000, kitchen and laundry – US$121,000, fixtures and furnishings – US$200,000. Every contribution, no matter how small, moves us closer to the actuality of the beautiful vision of a purpose built, excellent facility for our elderly and those recovering from major illnesses.
Please visit our website at www.bjekhomeandmission.com for more information and to make your donations. Thank you for being part of God’s mission in the world.
The end is in sight and we need your help to cross the finish line!
