Desert Causes

Operation Hope

Operation Hope is a grass-roots organization started by an American lady, Sheryll Miarza who is married to a Kuwaiti. Sheryll has been working for several years now, coordinating efforts to help those in need in Kuwait.

OH benefits underprivileged workers in Kuwait. Too often these third world employees are under dressed for the winter season and are without the means in which to purchase extra clothing and basic necessities for themselves. Most of them live in sub-standard housing located in large camps.

“It is our intention to bring hope to many who are in a seemingly hopeless situation by organizing a gift bag for approximately 3,500 men and women. Each bag will contain a warm hat, scarf, gloves, socks and thermal under-clothing. Additionally some bags may contain a brush, comb and other hygienic products.”

This is an on-going effort by Operation Hope and they welcome donations and volunteers (for packing and distribution).

You can help! Please contact Sheryll for further details.
