Caritas and Archdiocese of Piura donate six tons of food for the poor

.- Catholic charity group Caritas, together with the Archdiocese of Piura in Peru donated six tons of food this week to parishes, religious congregations, and schools in order to help the more than 2,630 poor residents of the region.

The donation, which consisted of rice, noodles, beans, cooking oil, cookies and beverages, was delivered to the Caritas food bank by its president, Archbishop Jose Antonio Eguren of Piura.
 
During the ceremony, the archbishop noted that the donations are intended to “alleviate, in some degree, the hunger for bread of the poorest of the poor, and also to tell them that they are not alone, as along with the Lord Jesus, we, their brothers and sisters, are with them in their trials and difficulties.”

Archbishop Eguren also asked the children and the adults who would benefit from the donations to offer their prayers that the efforts of Caritas to help the poor would be successful.

“Through our fraternal love, may the Church in Piura and Tumbes be a home and a school of Communion, in which we all see each other as children of the same Father, and brothers and sisters in Christ the Reconciler, called to live in fraternal and united love,” he said.
