Guatemala - Past Pupils of Don Bosco distribute food to needy

31 July 2020

Guatemala City, Guatemala - July 2020 - On July 25 the Don Bosco Past Pupils of Guatemala undertook two important pandemic relief operations, one in favor of the Parish of "Divine Providence", and the other addressed to the Vocational Training Center (VTC) "Father Bartolomeo Ambrosio". Both institutions received over 450 kg of beans, 450 kg of rice, and 100 sacks of salt. The parish manages some social service centers named after Mamma Margherita, which offer food and shelter to migrants; while the VTC, which was once full of young people who enthusiastically learned their trade, is now a warehouse for food supplies waiting to be distributed to students, who study remotely, and their families. Finally, it should be noted that the Past Pupils of Don Bosco are also participating in another initiative called "Various United Colors for a Mission": this is a synergy between Past Pupils of the Salesians, Marists and Jesuits who distribute essential cereals in various areas of the country.
