Lasallian Foundation Christmas Appeal

20 November 2023

Every child deserves a safe start in life….and a toy for Christmas. With your help we can give the children of Khushpur exactly that this Christmas!

The De La Salle Brothers conduct the National Catechist Training Centre (NCTC) in Khushpur, Pakistan. In Urdu, the native language of the Pakistani people, Khush means happy and pur means land. In English, this would suggest that the NCTC is located in Happy Land. However, the realities are far from that.

The Creche at the National Catechist Training Centre, Khushpur, Pakistan seeks to support the children of the families who have moved to Khushpur to be trained as catechists. These families have made the decision to support the mission of the Catholic Church in Pakistan, but their children need our help to flourish. The Creche which provides care for the children is very basic, they have very limited supplies of toys, educational resources, and necessities such as nappies, refrigeration to keep milk and food cold, and play equipment including books and toys.

All children have the right to be safe, to be cared for in environments which are good for them, and which ensure that are not only safe but healthy. Together, this Christmas, we can make this happen and enable our Lasallian ministry in Khushpur to create and sustain a vibrant and safe place for the young children there. Donate here.
