This year, we help several of our missions worldwide by funding wells, farm equipment, healthcare, and school nutrition.
Ghana - Artesian Well
Our sisters are asking aid to drill an artesian well for the population of Vumoh, a suburb of Karni in Northwest Ghana. Climate changes, such as droughts, desertification and deforestation have great impacts on waterways and productivity of this community’s livelihood. Thus, they cannot afford to drill an artesian well. They will be, however, able to maintain it through the sales of their crops and life stock.
Argentina – Ecumenical transition home
Our sisters in Quilmes, Argentina have asked our help for Betania home, a transition centre for women and children fleeing domestic violence. It offers a safe dwelling when their lives are endangered due to violent circumstances. The home is a temporary refuge so they can breathe again and find an autonomous alternative way of life for themselves and their children.
Paraguay –Street Children
Our sisters of the Mita Roga de la Pasión Home in the neighbourhood of San Lorenzo in the city of Caaguazu have created nutrition and schooling programs for children from unsafe, broken, alcoholic, and single-mother homes. This leads single mothers to take on the role of father as well as mother. It is a marginalized, displaced, unsalaried population where children must work on the street and for carpenters completing health hazard jobs. The home asked for annual funding for healthy nutrition and better basic schooling that what their parents can provide.
