I received a message from a graduate of Rapha Secondary School thanking me for all I’ve done to help her. She expressed her gratitude for the education she received and for the opportunities she had to improve her life and move toward a brighter future.

I was so touched by Mary’s message, and it was a such a perfect reminder during a very busy time of year. She is an example of why I have remained committed to this work even in the face of immense challenges.


We are changing lives every day, and I am incredibly grateful to you, to our donors and volunteers who make that change possible. It is a blessing to have a truly supportive community who continue to open their hearts to our children.

From everyone at HEAL and Rapha, we hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday with your loved ones! 

With gratitude,

Jennifer Musick Wright
