Donations for Lima, Peru, nutrition program exceed goal PDF Print E-mail

The generosity of the people of the Diocese of Pembroke shone through the dreary days of October and November as we exceeded our goal of $70,000 (for the first of three years) to support the nutritional feeding project in the community of Chorrillos, Lima, Peru. The amount of donations as of December 31, 2006, amounted to $102,559.00. Surplus funds raised in any given year will be retained and applied to succeeding years to ensure the success of the project. As the pilgrimage group toured this desert community, which stretched out as far as the eye could see (and beyond), they saw the atrocious living conditions of these people. The pilgrims can attest to the fact that when this project is put in place by the charitable organization, Caritas Lima, in January, 2007, it will truly benefit the children and educate their parents in nutrition. A heartfelt thank you to all of you who have contributed to this worthwhile cause.
