LAST CHANCE! 2020 will be Mission Direct’s 12th and final year working with Open Hands in Campo Largo, where teams have helped to build transitional homes to help move families out of the favela and into a home of their own in a safer, more secure environment. In 2020, teams will help complete any outstanding work on the sports field and visitor parking here. In 2021, teams will support work at ENCONTRO COM DEUS – a sanctuary for very young mothers, and mums with children who have been taken out of dangerous domestic situations.
During our 12 years in Campo Largo working with Open Hands, 28 houses have been built across three sites, with a further two almost finished and two final homes to be built this year. Come and help bring a close to the building aspect of the current project, we know they would LOVE to see some new faces and especially welcome some familiar ones back again. These homes have - and will continue to - help families move out of the favelas and transition to a home of their own for a brighter future.
In 2021 our project will move to support ENCONTRO COM DEUS - a sanctuary for very young mothers, and mums with children who have been taken out of dangerous domestic situations. An informative and popular afternoon visit for teams in recent years, we will be helping to refurbish and redecorate the accommodation and gardens.
Help us finish this campaign with a big impact!
