The story of a refugee begins with “hope”, in search of a better life to find freedom, protection and welcome.  The Living Water Community (LWC) strives to keep this hope alive and its ‘School of Hope’ is one initiative. It meets a need which has arisen with the influx of refugees—education; refugee children cannot access public education.

To facilitate outreach to children in different areas the LWC received a ten-seater Toyota HiAce van from the US Embassy. A ribbon cutting ceremony for the handing over of the vehicle and in honour of the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration on Human Rights, took place December 20 at the St Dominic’s Pastoral Centre, Diego Martin.
