Gozitan Priest Fr Anthony Zammit with a Santa Rosa update
|Email item||Print item||
Readers Letter – Hello from Santa Rosa – Peru. I had a visit from a sponsor from Belgium. She stayed in Santa Rosa for three weeks and she visited all the students of Colegio Anthony Zammit, spoke to their parents, took videos and encouraged the students to study and work harder.
She also organised a day trip and it was very successful. It is normally too expensive for these children to go out on a day trip. Anyway we took many photos and one of which made me feel like Gulliver. The lady is nearly as big as I but I seem to be much bigger, maybe because I rested on the roof of the house.
Thanking all the people who continuously donate for our Mission, especially Rita for her donations of stuff from her Lira Shop in Victoria, which she is closing down.
By the way the third photo shows the room where Dorisa, studies, sleeps and has her wardrobe (a rope to put her clothes on) plus a potato deposit.
Dorisa dreams to be a model – maybe someone in Malta would sponsor her and help her get there!A month or so ago, a man was murdered. It is believed that he lived a dangerous life and had bad companions. The fact remains that this man had 5 kids and a pregnant wife. Now the wife has a baby boy and cannot go to work in the fields for many months.
We would like to build a small house for them and maybe equip a room as a grocery store to have some financial income. Her eldest daughter of 14, Yackely does not speak well and never went to school. All she is able to do is wash the dishes.
We bought them a mattress, at least they do not have to sleep on the floor anymore.
God bless all donors who help us help such people.
Fr Anthony Zammit,
