Project Quezon City – Key Person: Terezinha Kunen, national coordinator of the “Pastorale Criança” for the Philippines

Due to reports of Sister Mara, Novacaritas became interested in a project that started thanks to the nuns of the Congregation Coração Imaculado de Maria, the same Congregation that operates in projects in Brazil.

The goal is to help solve the problem of hunger. Novacaritas helped by financing the purchase of a machine for the production of “multimistura”, which allows to pulverize leaves and roots that contain high nutritional value. This mixture is used as an additional meal for both children and adults.

The funds were enough so that Novacaritas could also improve the infrastructure and the organization of courses about food.
