The committee of the registered society The Life to Share (L2S) has finished a successful journey to Rome (Italy) in 2019. Reason was a meeting with the world board of the Missionaries of Saint Francis.
Until now this was the biggest project for The Life to Share. The Stella Maris school is a joint venture of “Sternstunden” (charity organization of the Bavarian Broadcast Company, BR) the Kloster Schäftlarn High School und The Life to Share. Only the The Life to Share has raised 20.000 Euro for the school’s extension – but this is already too small. .
This project is a matter of the heart for The Life to Share from the very beginning. Self determined work and earning money is a good way out of the desperate hopelessness for young women and girls. Another 30 to 40 girls and young women left the technical college of Mittapali with the diploma and an own sewing machine. The girls and young women are capable to work and earn money independent. They are fully nutritious in their communities and from now on independent of men.
In the near future (if the pandemic allows to travel) the annual inspection will lead the delegation of The Life to Share to Arusha (Tansania). Due to the Covid19-Regulations it is planned for beginning of 2021. Project leader Brother Matthew, MSFS, of the Missionaries of Saint Francis of Sales will join the group and show the most urgent projects. In the focus: schools, education and health care.
By far we are not at the end of the project “clean water for India” but now additional 20 bore wells are working. The communities in the Diocese of Khammam can use this wells from now on. Months ago the women of the parishes had to walk many miles on foot with heavy canisters on their heads.
In the countryside the women of the Third World are walking miles and miles for water. They carry heavy containers of 15, 20 kilos with water and come to their homes exhausted. But this water is not clean. It contains chemical remains and is not free of germs. The water of the existing water holes is up to a depth of 30 meters dangerous for their lifes. To resolve this matter swiftly: they need deep wells beyond the poisoned area.
A new project leader came for a visit to Wolfratshausen in the Allergika Pharma head quarter. Bishop Joseph Osei Bonsu from the Diocese Konongo-Mampong in Ghana presented his projects and needs.
Such as a solar plant for the clinic and some bore wells for the people in the countryside. In his talks with the President of The Life to Share, Hartmut Bannert, the bischop mentioned that especially in the rain season he has to drive with a tractor to visit the religious population. All other cars will stuck in the mud.
