“Our job is to love others without stopping to inquire whether or not they are worthy. That is not our business and, in fact, it is nobody's business. What we are asked to do is to love, and this love itself will render both ourselves and our neighbors worthy.” ― Thomas Merton

Bengali Gala - a Fundraiser for Suraiya Ataur Medical Clinic in Bangladesh

Saturday December 5th
5:30 — 8:00pm

The Suraiya Ataur Medical Clinic (SAMC), established January 2014 in the
village of Chondipur, in Bangladesh, now serves nearly 700 patients every
month! Families from several surrounding villages benefit.
With the support of the Interfaith Community Sanctuary and friends, a new
clinic building is being constructed. Our goal is to raise $50,000 for completion
and expansion of the clinic building, providing services, supplies, medicines,
doctors and nurses.

All are welcome. Come, share in the success of the clinic, learn how you can
help support the fruitful efforts, and if you are able, make a generous donation!
There is no cost to attend this beautiful gathering. If desired, you may donate
