On Tuesday, August 8 Casimir Catholic College, Marrickville had a visit from Br Colin Griffin and Br Moon Atif, Principal of La Salle Secondary School in Khushpur. The College community has a close relationship with the De La Salle communities in Pakistan, often fundraising to support the missionary work they do in their schools.
Khushpur, is situated in one of the largest Christian villages in Pakistan, home to approximately 600 families with 80% of them reliant on farming and agriculture for their livelihood.There is a very high level of poverty in the area and poor access to basic infrastructures and utilities, such as roads are unsealed and access to power and running water is very intermittent. Many of the religious priests, nuns, and brothers serving the Church in Pakistan have come from Khushpur.
Br Moon was taken on a tour of the College and was suitably impressed with Casimir's facilities and the friendships of the students. The College is looking forward to welcoming Br Moon back in the years ahead.
