WINGS donation

Many of you will remember Fr Pat Clarke who has visited us on several occasions and told us about his “City of the Angels Project” and his work with the poor in Brazil. In the state of São Paulo, Brazil, there has been heavy rain, flooding and landslides affected the Metropolitan Region of São Paulo State from Sunday 10 March, 2019.

Fr. Pat has told us that many of the houses in his area have been washed away and has asked if we can help. So we have sent £1,200 from our World In Need Group Account.
