Ethiopia-  Agricultural project to help the education and well being  of the girls in the hostel.

This included cultivating the hostel compound, rebuilding the hostel's aging fence as it was collapsing and people and animals were getting into the crops.

We thank McCartan Turkington Breen, Belfast Solicitors or their generous support to a food bank in the Philippines. Organised  for the Negritos assumed to be the aboriginal inhabitants of the archipelago. Many still live by hunting and gathering.

 

 

 

 

This group in particular are the indigenous people of the northern part of Mindanao located at the mountain ranges of Caraga region. They are natives living a nomadic lifestyle who the government try to educate and feed but they remain poor. This poverty when linked to extreme weather conditions and diseases makes life extremely challenging.

 

 

I am sure we will continue with similar support in the months to come including a visit from Santa which needs to be discussed with Santa’s helpers in Lapland.

The event was sponsored by McCartan Turkington Breen – The cultural dance session was performed  and presented by Jagrita Bal Club in Sindhupalchwok Distric, Nepal.

The Sindhupalchwok District has faced natural disasters including floods and landslides and because of the region’s geology it is prone to catastrophic earth movements.

 

Steep mountains and narrow roads in the Sindhupalchok District drastically slow communications and rescue packages when aid is needed but the area is rich in cultural diversity. People are concerned for building awareness and  conserving their culture and traditional dances.

McCartan Turkington Breen have sponsored various workshops with disadvantaged communities in Nepal to demonstrate and increase awareness of the benefits of the law and judicial system in easing our paths through life – and that an efficient and fair legal system is a societal  asset to be welcomed… for these presentations an increased  focus on drug abuse and recent trends in  cyber crime-
an aware community is a better prepared community. ”
