Three French Marist schools, Collège Notre Dame des Victoires (St Pourçain sur Sioule), Collège Immaculée Conception (Aubenas), and Collège Notre Dame de Valbenoîte (St Etienne), gathered the sum of 1964,25 euros for the SEA (Salud, Educación y Alimentación) project in Limpio, Paraguay.

The school mission collection was organized in May by Br. Michel Morel, and immediately met the generous response of the French students, always supportive towards projects of solidarity in the Marist world.

Limpio is a poor, overpopulated town 30 kilometres far from Asunción. The phenomenon of immigration from the surrounding rural areas has increased Limpio’ s population, as well as the number of unemployed and displaced families, with the obvious consequence of poverty, malnutrition and social risk for the children.
The Marist Brothers have been present in Limpio since 1992, with the Marist College “Sagrada Familia”, located in San Ramón, one of the poorest neighbourhood of Limpio. After ascertaining that many students were not able to attend classes with good results due to malnutrition and bad health conditions, the Brothers launched the “SEA” (health, education and food) programme in order to provide the needy students with adequate food and medical assistance.

The beneficiaries of the programme are 90 pupils aged 5 to 12 living in San Ramón. About the 40% of this group are currently attending the Marist school. They will receive dental, oculistic and psychological cares and daily meals.
