THE PERU MISSION

These Mosquito nets help not only the river communities but also those involved making and distributing them. A group of ladies and young girls who sew the mosquito nets gain a small wage which they employ to feed, clothe and educate their children. Working with local priests, nuns and pastors, we distribute these nets along the Amazon’s rivers and around the poorest barrios. Each year we make and distribute up to 5,000 mosquito nets.

Mosquito Nets

This is a project in the city of Iquitos for 18 people living with HIV/AIDS. Padre Raymundo Portelli, a Maltese priest, runs this intiative in the light of inertia by local authorities. It costs 1,000.00 per month to run and gives a safe home, a bed, food and companionship to people living with HIV/AIDS.  Nursing care, a healthy diet, medication,  electricity and water bills all add to the cost. PLEASE HELP THIS ESSENTIAL HUMANITARIAN WORK BY DONATING TO THE PERU MISSION.

Something Beautiful for God

Built in the grounds of an Orphanage for Young Girls aged 5-18 years, the functioning of this Bakery is aimed at fostering self-belief and providing training for 85 young girls so that they may become young businesswomen. In his way we are challenging ‘machismo’ and gender stereotypes and providing a route out of poverty. Thanks to our North East England business sponsors who made this possible.

Education is key to helping people out of poverty. We have now constructed four classrooms, a playground and a toilet block, but we still need to build two more classrooms and an admin area. Student groups from UK schools have plastered walls, painted walls, laid floors, turfed a football pitch. We are always pleased to receive new groups from schools, parishes and businesses.
