Major support for the centre comes from Tabitha Ministries linked to the Anglican Church in The Hague, Holland. The Hope Christian Trust has been instrumental in raising funds (over £10,000) to build an outside playground area, to dig a cistern for the centre and also to provide funds for summer schools in the area.
Support is sought from donors to give one month of running costs estimated currently at £2,500. The Hope Christian Trust is committed to giving at least two months of support and individuals, charities and churches are asked to partner with Tabitha Ministries and take responsibility for one month of support for the next five years to help the ministry to become strongly established and self sustaining. Substantial funding is also sought to finish the first floor accomodation facilities for visitors and for volunteers. (Contact the Trust for details).
Up and running "Praise the Lord".
