Novō Padrinos / An Invitation
As summer turns to autumn and an exciting new season begins for Novo, I’m writing…
Greetings from Bolivia, where we’re grateful that the third-wave of COVID, which peaked mid-June, has now receded and good progress with the vaccination programme – 50% of the adult population have now had their first dose, 35% both doses.
In the southern hemisphere, it’s ‘business as usual’ in July and August. In fact, it’s been a busy, positive period for Novo. Here are the highlights:
On his return to the US, Tom wrote a piece for Nations, reflecting on his experience. It’s a powerful read! You can find it here Dispatch: A Tour of Bolivia’s Beauty, Hurt & Hope
Having built relationship with staff and residents, Tom also took time to capture the personalities and activities that make-up daily life at Novo through the lens of his camera. A selection of his photos make up the gallery below.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read our news and for your ongoing support for Novō. Whether you support us in kind, in prayer, with finances, through friendship, or by telling others about us. In fact, it’s what makes Novo what it is!
If you are able make a gift to Novō at this time, or to begin recurring monthly donations, your support will make a lasting difference to our residents and their families.
Each month, in addition to regular giving, we need to raise in the region of £3,000 / $4,000 USD / $5,000 CAD.
Help residents in Novō Communities by becoming the “Padrino”, or Godfather, of a place in the program. Sponsor a full or partial placement through an ongoing donation ensuring there is always a space available for men who need it.
