HELP Donates to the Nuns of Sucina
On Monday 24th June HELP’s President, Christine Baillie, made the second presentation by the Charity this year of a cheque for €3,000; this time to the Nuns who run Casa Cuna la Anunciacion in Sucina.
This was received by a very grateful Sister Matilda who runs the project which helps care for mothers and children in the Murcia and Cartagena regions; some of whom come from violent relationships and many who for one reason or another have been disowned by their families.
The project runs a day nursery for young children, which allows their mothers to work, knowing the children are safe and well cared for. The nursing mothers, many of whom come from countries outside Spain, can live in until they find some accommodation of their own and are able to leave their babies in the care of the Nuns if they have jobs.
Sister Matilda spoke of their hope of moving to new premises which has been donated to them in Yecla, near Albacete, saying that the donation from HELP will be used to make any repairs needed.
Once again the decision to give money to Casa Cuna was made by the membership of HELP after being put forward by one of the charity’s members.
It is HELP’s policy to donate money to help others in the Murcia region from money raised by the volunteers during the previous year. If you could give a few hours of your time to helping others, please call on 968 570 059 or call in at our office in Los Alcazares. We look forward to hearing from you.
