Several years ago, while still on the Missions, I received a mail from a lady in England called Dianne Kidd. She said that she was setting up a charity to help fund Church and school projects in Ecuador. Would I be interested, they asked? Since making contact with them, they have done an amazing amount of sponsorship or our Nueva Prosperina projects: they funded much of the school building, and have now raise the money needed to build the Medical Centre. I was always astounded at their generosity. I was glad to use my Christmas break to travel down to Telford in Shropshire to say thanks for all that they have done for the poor people of Ecuador.
While down there, I celebrated Mass with many local people and visited Burton Borough School, which has done so much to help our projects. There is more from the “2 Hands Charity” on the back page. To our friends at the “2 Hands” charity, we say: Muchas Gracias.
