Headline: ASIA / KYRGYZSTAN – Caritas commitment to society, to reduce poverty and educate young people
Jalalabad – “The projects carried out by the Caritas of Kyrgyzstan are many and can be summarized in two large areas: charity and education. Every year, for example, we create annual summer rehabilitation camps for disabled children and their parents, with European doctors and volunteers who help participants gain new knowledge on how to raise a child with special needs. We have poultry farms and laboratories for former alcoholics and drug addicts, thanks to which children can acquire work skills. Since 2015, we have been carrying out an astronomy project in southern Kyrgyzstan, with about 30 teachers and more than 300 young astronomers: the 100 most deserving students, each year, can participate in a camp in Lake Issyk Kul, where they can observe the sky and study with the help of astronomers and Polish volunteers “. This was reported to Fides Agency by Sher Abdugapirov, deputy director of Caritas at the Jalalabad headquarters, illustrating the activities of the pastoral and charitable organization of the Bishops in Kyrgyzstan.
