PAZAPA – Church Stretton. Visit of Dr Charles Scholes
Wednesday 2nd May 2018
Our Visiting Speaker: Dr Charles Scholes
On May 2nd Church Stretton will have the privilege of hosting a visit by Dr Charles Scholes President of the Siloe Project. Siloe is a significant US charity through which funds are channelled to PAZAPA. The latter oversees and finances a school for severely disabled children in Jacmel, south-west Haiti. Dr Scholes joined the Siloe Board in 2008 and later became its President.
Through PAZAPA the Haiti school currently receives the enthusiastic support of many people in Church Stretton.
PAZAPA’s support for families has been more crucial than ever. Siloe’s fund raising efforts and generous donors are making it possible for PAZAPA staff to provide critical care and education for their handicapped students.
