BENEFITING: HOLY SPIRIT PEACE AND JUSTICE COMMUNITY
EVENT DATE: Jan 31, 2013
Our Foundation Holi Spirit Peace and Justice Community, is a Non Profit Organizatio that Helps raise funds for a Non Profit Organization Called Caminando por la Paz (Walking for Peace). It is located in CHAMELECON a place in the outskirts of San Pedro Sula, HONDURAS, and a place where HOPE is a luxury.
Caminando por la Paz has been active since 1999. They save children from being victims of the violence that is happening in the country between rival gangs. Some of the children chose not to join the gangs, and witnessed the rape, murder, and beheading of their mother! As long as they stay in our program and receive a Catholic education, the gangs leave them alone, out of respect! If they ever quit, they will be killed by the gangs!
Caminando por la Paz is the only hope for children and young people to receive a Catholiceducation, and a safe place to grow. We are currently helping about 80 students engaged in primary, middle, high school, and universities studies.
Many people from the United States have gone to visit the Organization, to live and engage with our program for a week or two. Our priest Father Thomas Goekler,a missionary from the Maryknoll Congregation passed away in 2010. From his death to this point, our program has faced many dire and desperate challenges. Significant donations of humble people have assisted us, and allowed us to continue educating most of our children. I am now in the United States to ask for your prayers and blessings and also to seek financial support for our foundation, to be used solely for education
