Project Nordestina (Sertão da Bahia) – Key Person: Sister Ana Lucia

In Sertão da Bahia region, in Nordestina, three nuns live in a land of drought and ungenerous, among the poor. They brought love and hope and have been able to put a smile on people’s faces.

They asked, through Sister Mara, an aid to Novacaritas to help produce the minimum required to live in this semi-arid region.

Thanks to goats and chickens and to the cultivation of a field, they can now produce fruit and a seedbed to ensure continuity in the production of vegetables. This brought hope to the people who live there.

Novacaritas helped by buying the necessary materials, creating infrastructure and ensuring water.
