For current reasons:
The school supported by GIPP in the jungle reports current supply shortages. The families of the supported pupils have lost their income and Father Ambrose is providing them with rice in a kind of "school meal". The emergency call came yesterday. Tomorrow we will transfer 1.500 Euro as emergency aid and we don't care that some day labourers are also supplied.
If you want to participate in this action, please transfer the money to the GIPP account with the remark "Schulspeisung". Up to 200 € the transfer receipt is automatically valid as a donation receipt.
The board of directors
We were delighted to hear from Sister Jomsy that the "New Roof" project for the school for the blind has been completed. The start of construction was delayed due to the heavy rainfall. She wrote us: ".... It was a great help for us. After the roof work the dripping through part of the terrace was stopped. Even in rain or heat the children's clothes can be dried well under the roof. In addition, the heat of the rooms is greatly reduced. It is a great blessing for us. Please convey the heartfelt thanks of the children and sisters to all who have given their financial support to this noble work. Please convey our special thanks and greetings to the bishop. Thank you very much, thank you very much. May God bless each one of you. Best regards, Sr. Jomsy".
