Visit to Jerez de la Frontera (Iberia)

From 6 - 9 November Derek and Alberto visited and stayed with the community in Jerez. Kevin Kupe, from Kinshasa (Province of Africa) has only recently joined this community Africa for a time of international experience. 

Also staying with the brothers were Edu and Chema, who were on leave from the prison in Jerez.  The brothers are involved in a project in which certain prisoners are granted permission to stay for a short time outside of prison. The brothers house is one such place for them to stay.

In addition, Alberto and Derek met with Sara and Janira, two young people from the neighbourhood who are social workers.  They told them about their commitment to the children and young people of the sector, and about their desire for the young people to get ahead in life, as they have been able to.

A meeting also took place with the Cáritas reception team - Loli, Vanessa, Fernanda, Silvia, Juan - who receive people in need from the neighborhood.  One of them shared with the visitors her reasons for volunteering to work in her parish Caritas: "I live here. And those who come to Caritas are my neighbours and my friends. And many times I wonder why I'm still here ... Maybe it's for God ".
