St Joseph’s Advent Charity 2019

Last Advent we supported The Mother of Good Counsel / Mater Dei Girls’ Centre, in Rivers State, Nigeria.

This is a Non-Governmental and Not-for-Profit Organisation committed to counsel, inspire and empower less privileged out-of-school girls and young women in Rivers State, Nigeria. They need their own building to actualise their vision as they run two different centres in the state and the rents are high.

Fr Uche visited the centre recently, and brought back photos and a letter of appreciation from the Executive Director – please see letter of appreciation below, and click here to see some of the photos.
