The scope has now increased to support clients from diverse backgrounds including asylum seekers, abuse, mental health and many more.

Julien joined MADM in October 2020 after 5 years working as a Teaching Assistant in a Special Needs primary school for autistic children. “I knew that God had a plan for me to do something else but I didn’t know what, until I was offered a role at MADM. I love the heart of this charity, which is true charity or love, to give to those who have little or none in the physical or spiritual sense, in the name of Jesus. It is the daily opportunities to worship God with our minds, our spirit, and our hands as we reach out to help others. I am so grateful that I get a chance to serve Him here in Maidstone, a place I have lived in since 2000. This is where I lived when I decided to follow Jesus with my whole heart in 2000, and a place I joined with others to pray for regularly many years ago. Now I feel like I am actually fulfilling those prayers.”
