Trauma Healing Ministry

Region:

Latin America

Country:

Brazil

Missioner Responsible:

Fr. Dennis Moorman, M.M.

Fear, anxiety, depression… these are common symptoms of trauma that Fr. Dennis Moorman addresses in his training program for trauma therapists in Brazil.  Each class can accommodate up to 80 students, and a volunteer assistant is assigned to every three students. 

Volunteers are from low-income neighborhoods, and often the victims of trauma themselves.  By volunteering, they experience healing they could never afford on their own.

Your support will contribute greatly to this program’s success.

Fr. Edward O. Custer, M.M.

Many youngsters in El Ramate Parish of Guatemala cannot continue their studies after primary school because their families are just too poor to afford the cost of school supplies and end-of-year fees.  Father Edward Custer helps defray these costs so the children can advance to junior high and high school.

Peru

Missioner Responsible:

Son, Kyungsu

Father Kyungsu Son, M.M., is the project advisor in which young blind adults of the House of Bartimaeus, the only school/center that teaches massage therapy affordably to the blind in Southern Lima, learn massage therapy techniques and reflexology and Shiatsu. Your gift will enable Father Son to purchase equipment, supplies and two one-month practicums in three prisons for a total of six campaignes.

The training workshop for the blind in massage therapy that began in 2013 has increasingly grown over the past five years and it is hopeful that by 2020, the project will be assumed by the Diocese of Lurin. Father Son provides pastoral counseling for the blind students and their families.

The students learn from licensed blind professors the application of theoretical and practical concepts of body therapies, the anatomy of human bone structure and muscle systems, and the functional physiology of the organs and joints.

Missioner Responsible:

Bro. Loren W. Beaudry, M.M.

This project is aimed at educating schools, churches and the general public, on the different types of learning disabilities that children, as well as adults, face in their daily lives.  Bro. Loren Beaudry hopes to help others to have a better understanding of the way children learn in school and how might the schools change their methods of teaching to cater to those who are having difficulty.

Br. Loren is working with three young people who started a Non-Government Organization called ‘Msaada Foundation’ [Help Foundation].  The project, which began in July, 2020, is ministering to children with learning disabilities, such as ADHD, ADD, Dyslexia, Autism etc.

With your help, Br. Loren hopes to work with the members of the ‘Msaada Foundation’ to teach schools and parishes through seminars and workshops about learning disabilities.
