As part of United World Week activities, the collection of goods for the Dare to Care initiative was donated to the Daughters of the Sacred Heart. This religious community was founded in Malta in 1903, and is now also present in India, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Philippines, Italy and USA.
Today we met with Sister Carmelina and Sister Tessie. We had a beautiful moment where they shared their experience working in their home in Zurrieq, where they currently host six boys. They also spoke about their work with children across the island. Then we shared with them the various initiatives held during the United World Week and their main aim. We explained that this year’s events focus mainly on social and environmental ecology.
During this meeting we appreciated reciprocally the work done by both entities. It was an enriching experience. At the end of the meeting, we helped the Sisters to load their car with the goods collected during this month’s Dare to Care’s Initiative. They left Kappara with a car jam packed with goods for the children. Next time it will be our turn to visit them in Zurrieq!
