Currently on pause. If you are interested in learning or if you know how to make comfort birds and would like to help us continue this ministry, let us know.
Hand-carved by one of our members, these birds are given to those in need of comfort. To date, we have provided hope and comfort to 120 individuals and their families with this simple act of kindness and caring. If you know of anyone who is ill or suffering, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 410-685-5290. Include full name, address, and reason for the Comfort Bird in you e-mail or telephone message. You may also support this effort through our Giving page.
Mount Vernon Place has been sending regular shipments of small ticket items that make a big difference to communities in Sierra Leone through our partnership with Pastor Francis Charley, the United Methodist Church District Superintendent of the Bo District, Sierra Leone.
Pastor Francis Charley is the founder the Benmat School and Orphanage in the Bo district. This institution serves about 300 children through the eighth grade who became orphaned during Sierra Leone's civil war. MVP-UMC has partnered with Pastor Charley to support this school and its community. We ship containers of school supplies such as pens, pencils, paper, and notebooks in addition to toiletries and hygiene related supplies throughout the year.
Pastor Charley shared our last shipment of supplies with the Valunia United Methodist Church in the community of Monghere in the Bo district, "in the bush." The photo to the left is a group of members from the Valunia Church which, like the Benmat School, was begun by Pastor Charley.
If you would like to make an electronic donation to support District Superintendent Francis Charley's ministry to the communities in the Bo District, Sierra Leone, please give to our "Benevolence Fund" or mail a check directly to the church. The electronic Donations Link and church address can be found on the Giving page of this website.
