Food for Andes Mountains Students

Project Leader:

Sister Sister M. Ancilla Maloney

The district of Layo where the Sacred Heart Alternative High School is located is 12,000 feet high in the Andes mountains. There are no high schools in the region for the students to attend. Their families are poor farmers or raise animals. They cannot afford to send food with their children to the school except for some potatoes. They leave home at 4:00 AM walk 4 or 5 hours from their homes to Layo each Thursday and stay overnight with families in town. They go to class Friday and then walk home again. Please help provide nutrition for these ambitious students.

Dear Anonymous, I am thinking of one of the readings from Matthew' Gospel where Jesus specifically said "Feed the Hungry". Sometimes we agree and don't act. God bless your response to our request and know that you have helped us reach our goal. When the young people come back to school next week their meal will include fruit, vegetables and meat thanks to you and so many others. God bless you!!! Sister Ancilla
