Due to the present crisis we have had to temporarily close our shop in Walsingham and our Office in Doncaster. However, we are very much “open” in the sense that we still have children in Medellín who depend on us and whom we are trying to support as far as is possible under the difficult circumstances that exist in Colombia right now. We are, for example, making up food parcels for the children who will not be able to come to Casa Walsingham for lunch for the next 3 weeks of lockdown in Medellín, so that they do not go hungry.
It seems highly likely that the eight weeks of fund-raising planned for Fr Peter during May and June will have to be cancelled. This is bound to have a severe effect on the charity’s finances and so we ask your prayers, for Fr Peter, for our staff and for our children. Please know that they will be praying for you, our supporters, too.
Donations can still be made in the usual ways and the Administrator can still be contacted on 01302 858369.
