Thank you for your Lenten donation to help St. Clare School in Paita, Peru. The school supplies were delivered by our three delegates, Lisa, Sarah, and Deb when they traveled in June. Thanks to St. Anthony’s on the Lake, the non-prescription medications and 30 clarinets, are now being shipped via their Peru Program. Nick and Lucille, thanks for spending the time to inspect all the clarinets before they were sent.
The money collected during Lent is going to purchase a patio floor for the St. Clare School PRONOEI program. This program is to help 3, 4 and 5 yr. old children prepare for elementary school. The floor will be placed beneath the canopy in the printed picture. When the new floor is installed,, we’ll publish an updated picture.
The PRONOEI school is located in a very poor area of Paita, Peru. The average wages are approximately $247 per month. Many of the people don’t have electricity, plumbing, or water. Water must be purchased by each household from a delivery truck.
