What’s Happening this Week

What’s Happening this Week 

Meninadança’s 170km walk saves more lives.Thank you for your prayers and financial support  for the team who walked 170kms from Medina to Mucuri during the week 16-21st July.
The walk took place over 6 days along the BR116 motorway (unlike UK motorways, they can walk on grass verges, where there is one!) and the team were: Matt Roper, Warlei Torezani, Holly Eves and Lorene Zacu.
A follow-up team visited the small towns and service stations giving out leaflets and talking to young girls along the way. Lots of good conversations took place. At each Kilometre sign a pink ribbon was tied to signify that kilometre was covered in prayer and Meninadança would hold to account anyone who sexually abused children.
Your continued prayer support for this vital work is very much appreciated. Meninadança has two Pink Houses in the towns of Medina and Candido Sales, but through the recent sponsored walk from Medina to Mucuri, a third project can be opened to reach out and rescue even more girls suffering sexual abuse.
To help Meninadança set up and run this third project you can still donate either by one-off donations or by taking out a monthly standing order—and allow Meninadança to claim gift aid if that’s appropriate for you.
Literature and donation forms are available anytime from Dave & Eileen Roper, or Bob Goody, or you can go onto our website www.meninadanca.org and donate online
