In 1960, American doctors Pat and Marian Kennedy came to the desert of Arabia to start Oasis Hospital at the invitation of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the father of the modern UAE. The incredible work that they began six decades ago continues today under the name of Kanad Hospital - renamed to honor the Kennedy family's legacy by His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan in 2019. From it's humble beginnings as a simple desert outpost, Kanad now boasts a state of the art facility with 136 beds and a modern NICU, all made possible by the love and support of Shaykh Mohamed and the Al Nahyan family. On October 1, 2020 True Sojourners had the honor of receiving the baton of ownership for this incredible institution, and it has quickly become our flagship project. We remain committed to our other work around the world, as it is this very work that qualified us to take on Kanad in the first place. Indeed, your support of Kanad Hospital strengthens all of True Sojourners' work around the world.
True Sojourners is a supporter of the Bridge to Nepal project, which started with the redemption of Nepali families from slavery. It has now become our largest project, involving the building of schools, the operation of a children's home, disaster relief, clean water and flood solutions, and much more. Please consider partnering with us in our efforts to bring generational transformation to the lives of former Nepal slaves and their families.
With representatives living and working in communities where the world’s highest concentration of refugees displaced by war and conflicts are currently located, True Sojourners is strategically positioned for a sustainable response to the refugee crisis. As an organization, True Sojourners is dedicated to not only providing for immediate physical needs, but more importantly, our workers are committed to the longer term well-being of these refugee communities. This kind of assistance is only possible through the development of personal relationships. Our workers are personally involved with the victims of the refugee crisis – they are no longer a photo on a news feed but beloved friends and neighbors. Your gift to the Refugee Aid fund will help provide True Sojourners with the resources needed to meet both the short-term physical needs as well as the longer term needs of our friends in the Middle East. True Sojourners has responded with relief and development – providing help as needed in education, vocation, medical care, etc.

Kanad Hospital is in need of a mammography machine to help our doctors diagnose and treat one of the world's leading women's health issues - breast cancer.
Our goal of raising the $200,000 needed for the machine before the stroke of midnight on New Year's Eve is not merely a fun challenge or an opportunity for a year-end tax deduction. For it also speaks to the urgency of the need, as every day that passes without this crucial diagnostic technology hinders our ability to care for the women of this nation and region.
This Christmas, as we ponder the mystery of the Incarnation, we thank you for your support in helping us to incarrnate the Word in our flesh among the precious people we serve.
