The COVID-19 pandemic crisis has put us down but there are still many reasons to thank God as He is Almighty faithful and never to forsake us! God can never be outdone in generosity and He uses people as instruments to carry out His good works!
The present crisis has badly affected TWH with unexpected work stoppage which we had not prepared for. We commend the good efforts of the TWH BOT especially our President/CEO and EVP/COO who were able to implement operations for our medicine packaging and metalcraft livelihood workshops to provide work though limited and on rotational schedule for our majority of workers. But with God’s bountiful grace, we were assisted by kindhearted people who became instruments of His hope, providence and healing!
