This year's celebration will feature our brand new Marketplace, offering homemade candles, soaps, baked goods and more!
This, indeed, has been a sad week for our nation. The tragedy in Boston on April 15, 2013, has left our nation questioning our safety and grieving the loss of three beautiful human beings and the injuries suffered by almost two hundred. Violence is a destructive and deplorable aspect of human nature, and we at Zaman International stand with the victims and their families. We ask God to sustain them with patience and return them to wellness. We ask for His grace and mercy upon those who were killed by this insanity.
Wherever in the world there are victims of violence, we send you our Hope for Humanity and our commitment to a peaceful and more just world. To the victims and the survivors of the Boston Marathon tragedy, we join you in your grief and loss. We extend to you a virtual yellow rose, a symbol of friendship, warmth and love.

President Clinton acknowledges one of Zaman International's most critical partners - International Medical Corps' President and CEO Nancy Aossey - for 25 years of leadership. Zaman International works with this trusted partner to deliver the most impact on the ground worldwide. This means that every dollar you give following natural disasters and in war zones around the world is leveraged, on average, 30 times over with additional grants, medicine and supplies, guaranteeing that people in need receive lifesaving help. We congratulate founder Dr. Robert Simon, M.D., for his vision for International Medical Corps and we salute the leadership of Nancy Aossey as CEO for 25 years.
On behalf of the network at Zaman International, we would like to take a moment to remember the 20 beautiful children and 6 heroic teachers who lost their lives at Sandy Hook Elementary, along with their families, during our nation's time of grief.
As the holidays approach there is a spirit of renewed "Hope for Humanity." For these families the one thing that may support them is the hope that their loved ones reside in a place far more peaceful than this one.
Together as a human family we must do better to protect the women and children of our world. These two populations, along with seniors, are often the most marginalized.
Though these families did not suffer from poverty, hunger or homelessness, they still suffered from the brutality of a world that often seems lost in anger and violence.
We must work together as one humanity to bridge the gaps that exist. We must create hope for a future that is bright and beautiful, where the children of the world look forward to clean water, clean food, education, and a sense of security and peace at home and at school.
To this end, Zaman International renews its pledge to our community and to the global village at large. We will work harder and longer to meet our mission grounded in all that is good and to dismiss all that is not.
In honor of the memory of these beautiful children and their families, we ask you to consider a contribution of your time to volunteer, a gift of support, or a prayer for the upcoming new year. Whatever you choose - our goal is togetherness in this time of national grief. Please stay in touch with us.
Most Sincerely Wishing You a Safe and Prosperous New Year,
Najah Bazzy, RN
