1 Samuel 2:8

“The Lord raises the poor from the dust, He lifts the needy from the ash heap.”

C.S. Lewis

“If our charities do not at all pinch or hamper us, I should say they are too small.”

Proverbs 19:17

“Those who are kind to the poor lend to the Lord and He will reward them for what they have done.”

Mahatma Gandhi

“I shall pass through this world but once. Any good therefore that I can do or any kindness that I can show to any human being, let me do it now. Let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.”

"I would like to express my heart-felt thanks for the way in which you 'look after me'. Be encouraged in the fact that you are an inspiration in your professional work."

"Your giving has been overwhelmingly generous. Our lives are clearly enriched by the tangible blessings you have given us.  We cannot begin to express our deep gratitude for all you have done for us and can certainly never approach any reasonable repayment. We can only pray God’s richest blessing on you and your family as you continue to reflect His extravagant love."

"I am so grateful for the 'no-cost' examination. I walked away shaking my head at the goodness of God and how He moves servants like you to bless guys like me. Your vibrance and kindness have already touched me."

"Your encouragement has been much appreciated."

"We all appreciate your generosity of the heart, donating your services. It is a difficult time for the family being transplanted from their country of origin in such horrific circumstances. They will remember your kindness for the rest of their lives. Caring people such as yourself is what has made Canada a caring nation to the world. I am honored that you are my family dentist and very grateful for your help. May God bless you and your family and wonderful staff."

"I never thought that I would say that I looked forward to going to the dentist and to feel sorry when the treatment was finished, but here it is – I do! This was of course due to you and your very nice assistants."

"As a new dentist in this country, we’ve faced a lot of difficulties. Luckily, we always meet with some warm-hearted people like you who offer us various kind helps. I am deeply impressed by this friendly country, and I am more confident not to start my new career here. I hope that one day I can enter the profession I love and be able to give my helping hands to other people in need. It’s so nice to get to know you!"
