Chicken and Rabbit Project

Region:

Latin America

Country:

Bolivia

Missioner Responsible:

Brother Joseph Bruener, M.M.

Brother Joe Bruener, M.M. hopes to lend out chickens and rabbits to parishioners to raise for food or pets. Once their animal produces offspring, they will give back one of the offspring, keep the original animal and the new offspring will be lent out to another family. It’s a club that meets once a week, where they pray then go on to build rabbit hutches, learn about feeding and care of the animals and how to raise them properly for food or pets.

Your support with help to start a weekly club with Brother Joe that teaches responsibility and living our Catholic faith. Volunteers will be guest speakers who will advise the group on care and feeding of rabbits and chickens.

Along with the need for food and medicine, Brother Joe Bruener hopes to help the children at San Martin home have a ‘normal’ childhood. They don’t always have money to cover expenses for extras like field trips to the parks or museums or money to buy treats for the fiestas. Sometimes they need new clothes and there isn’t enough money for that. The older ones may need help with training when they leave the system. There is a broad spectrum of needs where you can help.

The needs of the children are so great and the money they have is really limited. Brother Bruener needs your help!

“Why must a missioner assume the role of physician of the body as well as of the soul? Simply because, if we do not, it will not be done. When Our Lord sent His apostles to preach to the whole world, did He not say something about curing also?”

– Fr. Otto Rauschenbach, Maryknoll Magazine, January 1941
