Sr Maeve O’Driscoll – Peru

Sr Maeve O’ Driscoll is a Cross and Passion Sister working in a huge shanty town called Villa el Salvador in Peru where some parts have no running water and some of the roads are just sand tracks. She uses our funding for a Programme for the Elderly which provides medical attention and medicines and a hot meal twice a week for about 70 older people who have been abandoned by their families – there  is no social security or old age pension for them. She also uses some money for a “useful holidays” summer programme for children who would otherwise have no chance of a holiday.
