Earlier this month we received a video update from Fr Amani and our friends in Bunkpurugu!

Fr Amani explains that even during these strange and uncertain times the work to build the school in Bunkpurugu has continued to take place and he thanks everyone for their amazing efforts and support!


We pray for the safety and happiness of our friends in Bunkpurugu. 

Help us to be kind and generous and share what we have, so that we can continue to make a positive difference to their lives.
