Many thanks to Weronika Ozieranska for her fantastic talk about CAFOD’s work in Peru at our Harvest fast day briefing at St Bede’s Church Basingstoke last week. It was great to hear about Warmi Huasi which is project to provide children with a safe place to play, support them with homework and enable them to participate in their community. The project is based in impoverished outskirts of Lima called Lomas de Carabayllo. Weronika explained that many parents work in Lima which is a 2 hour bus ride away so the project provides somewhere for the children to go to after school. The children are also encouraged to become involved in their local community and create safe places to play.
Many thanks to St Bede’s for hosting the meeting and to Tony and Mary our parish volunteers at St Bede’s for helping to set up, clear away and serve teas and coffees. Thank you to all those who came to the meeting .
If you would like to hear more about our work in Peru Weronika will be speaking at our Harvest fast day briefing on Wednesday 19th September at English Martyrs Church Reading RG30 2EB from 7:15pm to 9pm and also on Saturday 22nd September at Our Lady Queen of Peace Church Southbourne BH6 3ER from 2:30pm to 4:30pm .
