Training Workshop in Massage Therapy for the Women’s Prisoners at the Jail by Blind Professors

Region:

Peru, Latin America

Missioner Responsible:

Fr. Kyungsu Son, M.M.

Fr. Kyungsu Son and his team plan to teach adult women prisoners at the prison to become therapists who will provide wellness through the techniques of Massotherapy “free of charge” to the population of inmates of the Establishment Penitenciaria. Using relaxing massages to relieve stress, they will help to recover the emotional stability of the people assisted. The prisoners will be trained in Massage Therapy techniques and Reflexology and Shiatsu (Japanese Massage) by the licensed blind professors from La Casa Bartimeo in theoretical and practical concepts of body therapies, anatomical bone structure and muscle, and related techniques. With your gift, the female prisoners are released from prison and return to society, can immediately use the skills they learned in prison to work as professional masseuses.

“and the prayer of faith will save the sick person, and the Lord will raise him up. If he has committed any sins, he will be forgiven.”

Support Education Major Seminarians

Region:

Tanzania

Missioner Responsible:

Fr. Hung Dinh, M.M.

Fr. Dinh’s project is to assist the local church in training and formation necessary to continue our mission to support and strengthen local church. The majority people in the Diocese depend on agriculture and keeping of animals, leaving no available funds to help support the church and the studies of major seminarians.   

The Catholic Diocese of Shinyanga was formed and cultivated by Maryknoll since 1950. Today the seeds that have been planted by Maryknoll have blossomed with 67 major seminarians (2021-2022) and 82 for this year (2022-2023). With your help, Fr. Dinh hopes to continue the education of these young men.

Missioner Responsible:

Fr. Joyalito Tajonera

Care of Creation – to support and implement Maryknoll’s mission education outreach to care, protect, educate, advocate for the Care of Creation. With the rising awareness of Corporate Social Responsibility, many international corporations have published supplier policy standards, CSR reports, vulnerable worker policies, as well as declarations against modern slavery. While these policies aim to protect the rights of migrant workers and the communities, sometimes supplier factories hide these abuses and violations. The goal of this project is to eradicate human rights and environmental abuses in global supply chains and have a sustainable world that is equitable for all workers and communities by connecting migrant workers voices to those with the power to make change.
