The apostolic prelature of Corocoro lies high in the Andes in one of the poorest regions of Bolivia, where 80% of the population live in extreme poverty. Even such things as access to clean drinking water and adequate nutrition are by no means guaranteed, to say nothing of the need for medical care.
Most of the people live in small and remote villages, difficult of access, given the rough unmade roads, dangerous and difficult and often quite impassable in the rainy season.
The Missionary Sisters of Jesus the Eternal Priest are a congregation founded in Italy in 1947. They work here in the prelature with selfless devotion, caring for the poorest families, the neglected elderly and lonely and for orphaned children.
They also work with the handicapped and instruct the children and young people in the faith, preparing them for reception of the sacraments. Their work is a veritable blessing for so many people.
For now the sisters are housed temporarily in Quime, a very small village where there is often not even enough water to drink. But the bishop would like them to build a convent on a plot of land belonging to the Church in the small town of Patacamaya, where the prelature has its seat. We are proposing to support this project. Will you help us to help them?
Your kind help towards this project will be able to sustain the Sisters’ mission outreach to the poorest and neglected families, elderly people and children in the area.
