The Nyadire Connection maintains many ongoing programs:
Each year The Nyadire Connection provides a Christmas card with a $20 bill inside to many of the employees of Nyadire Mission. Typically cards have been given to the 200 people of the Hospital, the Home of Hope Orphanage, and the pastors, but if funds allow, we hope to send to all employees of Nyadire. As much as possible, funds come from a special appeal but TNC also supports the program from general funds.
Each card is addressed to an individual and signed. Such a personal greeting reinforces the growing connection we have with the people of Nyadire. In a country where most people lucky enough to work and earn $100 in monthly wages, a $20 gift is very special. This expression of caring is a morale boost to friends who continue to live in a very difficult situation.
Liberty UMC of Washington, PA coordinates this program. Donations may be sent directly to TNC, c/o Christ United Methodist Church, 44 Highland Road, Bethel Park, PA 15102 and designated for Christmas Connection in the memo.
