HODOVO UPDATE

on . Hits: 2114

Those of you who follow the Parish Website will know that the Parish has 'adopted' a school in Boznia Herzegovina in a little village called Hodovo. Hodovo has attached to it a small Refugee Settlement. The UN now refer to these people as IDPs - Internally Displaced Persons. They were 'ethnically cleansed' from other parts of the former Yugoslavia and ended up in this non-too-hospitalble place.

 

The Children of Hodovo

 

 

Some of the boys and girls from our school, accommpanied by teaching staff, went to visit the settlement and the schools which the children attend. They gave an account of their trip to the congregations at the Masses on the weekend of June 18th/19th. They were very well received.

 

Here are the slides which went with their presentation.
