Everyone has a connection to a geographic location, where the family of their heart belongs, it could be based in culture, religion, memories of life's daily routines from childhood or maybe a yearning for the preciousness of love...

To aid the community bond each family contributes a nominal monthly fee to help individual families during financial difficulties.
