It has been already five years since I entered this big family of Casa Ricci. I feel that during these five years our work was always changing and improving, and I believe we are able to bring healthier life conditions and comfort to many people.
The most important part of my work is to keep contact with our benefactors. Every once in a while, I inform our benefactors about Fr. Ruiz’ mission, about the work that the staff of Casa Ricci is developing in China, and about the lives of the people we help. Sometimes I also receive letters from benefactors and friends, who also like to share about their lives with us, or to say hello to Fr. Ruiz and to the patients we help.
For me the most encouraging thing is to see that we receive help and donations from so many kind hearted people. We use this money to help the leprosy rehabilitation centers, to improve the medical assistance to leprosy patients, to build “children’s homes” and give the AIDS affected children a better environment, to help pay the studies and life expenses of children from poor families and allow them to receive education and care, etc…
As the saying goes: “many a little makes a mickle”, every little bit of help we receive from our benefactors is very precious to us. And here I am, as faithful member of this Casa Ricci family, promoting our mission and thanking all of you for your help towards the poor.
For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them. (Ephesians 2:10 )
