CJ Nepal, New Health Outreach

The Nepal Region has begun a mobile clinic in the remote village of Sirsia in the New Year 2017. Sr. Neelu, who is a trained nurse from India, had to pass an examination and get herself registered with the Nepal Nursing Council. Having completed all the formalities, the Government has given the official go ahead to this project. It is a joint project between sisters of the Congregatio Jesu and the Jesuits. It is a challenging and difficult job to go to remote places in these very poor villages in the severe cold and start from scratch. The team, headed by Sr. Neelu, have committed themselves to this new venture with full involvement and zeal, six days a week from 8.30am to 5.30 pm.

From the 3rd to 9th January 2017, for the sixth consecutive year, some young people of Chile, aged between 16 and 23, came together for a summer programme. This group of volunteers included students and alumni of our schools in Chile. The purpose of this summer gathering was to contact the people of the countryside, to discover the richness of these people, to meet God in their ordinary life and to awaken in them great desires to serve, especially the neediest.
This year the experience was in San Agustín, a rural town located in the interior of Salamanca. 40 young people from the CJ schools in Antofagasta, Chillán and Santiago participated. This time the emphasis was on “being” more than on “doing”. The young people realized that it was much more important to stop and listen to people, their stories, their pains, their joys, their desires and their experience of God, rather than to dedicate themselves to actions, like weeding, building, painting etc. as they did previously.
