Three years ago a woman in Islamabad, capital of Pakistan, was so moved by the plight of mentally handicapped and autistic children that she started a school for them in her own home. Some had been abandoned at the St. Joseph's Hospice by parents who could no longer cope with them.
Within a year her work developed into the Centre for Profound Education.
Loadf Project is joining with locally based medical education charity Prime and Sussex Partnerships NHS Trust to help develop this work.
The aim of the latest Loaf Project, Wheels of Mercy, is to raise £10,000 to supply a suitable vehicle to transport children to the centre so that they can recieve the care, education and training to transform their lives and the lives of their families.
On the 20th October we were joined by the Bishop of Lewes, The Right Reverend Richard Jackson to celebrate passing our target by reaching over £11,000. At the celebration it was suggested, due to the larger premises now being looked at for the CPE, we should continue this project until we can pay for a larger vehicle that will be able to bring more young people to the centre.
Saturday, September 30th 7-10 PM
Church Road, St Leonards
There is an opportunity to celebrate the success
of the project for an evening of Pakistani food,
music and praise and learn more about the work of the CPE and other programs which bridge social cultural and religious divides in Pakistan.
The evening is free with donations accepted.
