Creative initiatives to help those who are most in need, Priego (Cuenca), November 2014.
Do You know what "Help your brother" is? It is a small group of volunteers who, together with the community of Servant Sisters of Priego, make varied handcrafts with the goal of helping needy families.
This time they have surprised us with some nice sandals they made that are ready to travel the world to announce that charity is possible.
You can see that our sisters have the gift of selling, because on their way, the first sandals were sold to a policeman, three more to a footwear distributor, the other three were sold at the pharmacy, and five to a father of a family ... They almost did not reach their destination: a hostel where they will be offered to the tourists who invade the town these days.
The messages that accompany them: 'I go with Jesus’; 'I shall follow you wherever you go', etc., make it a perfect gift for the youngsters who are going to be confirmed.
As the shoe store is doing well - we are told by the volunteers - we are also making foam shoes and booties, that will remind many parents the day of the baptism of their children.
