Tegucigalpa, (Honduras) -- Central American project assisting the needy

During Holy Week of 2004, sixty young men from Guatemala, El Salvdor and Honduras, both university and high school students, took part in a solidarity project and gave classes of human and Christian formation to a group of children in the impoverished areas of Tegucigalpa. They also visited an institution for handicapped children and distributed food to the needy.

This was an opportunity to live with people from other countries and exercise a spirit of service during Holy Week. One of the highlights was a visit to the Shrine of Our Lady of Suyapa. The participants stayed at the Guaymura University Center, where they took part in various cultural activities, including a conference on the Holy Shroud of Turin.

The project received support from many people and from governmental agencies that provided school material for the children and access to sports facilities.
