Joint visit to Mary Ward Loreto (MWL) in Albania

Sisters Noelle and Jane had an inspiring three days from 20 to 22 June visiting Sister Imelda Poole IBVM and her dedicated team of lay colleagues who run the Mary Ward Loreto NGO in Albania.  MWL gives hope to many, and especially women, in a country in which the majority of people remain poor and have little opportunity.  The focus of the work is in the support and empowerment of women in abusive situations or who are at risk of being trafficked.  However, there is also much work done to support young people through leadership programmes and skill providing programmes in areas such as cooking, tailoring, hair and beauty for young women and training to be mechanics and electricians for young men.
