Description

Our relationship with the people of Gingee, India, began several years ago when we participated in the “Goats for Widows” project. These “Untouchables” live in 20 villages spread across a large area in Tamilnadu in South India. Through our Lenten sacrifice seven years ago, we built them a beautiful community center. Now the building is completed and the center is being used for Sunday Masses, community gatherings and as a study hall for students. Over the summer, children had their summer camp at the center. The children in that community are suffering during this pandemic as they are unable to go to school and their education is negatively impacted. We are raising funds to help Fr Val buy school supplies and thus supplement these children's education. Thank you for your generosity.
