Congregation member Nancy’s daughter, Lina, passed away suddenly, 4 years ago at the age of 30. Shortly after, the CEO of her company came from London and suggested that we do something positive in her memory. The goal was to celebrate her life, and what better way, than to try to bring joy and happiness to others.
With the help of her company, we decided to sponsor summer activities for under-privileged children here in Brussels. Our long-term partner Nativitas, was invited to help put the plan in action. Originally intended as a one-time event, it was so successful that Nativitas agreed to be an on-going partner. This is now the second year that IPC has adopted it as a Mission Project.
This month we want to support this effort.
The children come from many different countries of origin: Algeria, Morocco, as well as other African countries, also the Eastern Bloc, and of course Belgium. We try to make it as multi-cultural as possible. Without financial help, none of these children would be able to participate in any of these activities. They would be spending the summer at home, often in a very small living space, with little to do.
