Some of our dedicated Guyanese ministry partners were recently featured in a documentary about Catholics serving the poor and vulnerable in this beautiful but economically challenged country. Watch the video below to meet the girls at St. Ann’s Orphanage in Georgetown and to join Fr. Humberto Villa on a boat ride into the impoverished tropical countryside.
When I met Fr. Humberto six years ago, he was a young priest newly assigned to the region by his order, the Institute of the Incarnate Word. Now he serves as headmaster of a boys’ dormitory while also tending to the needs of families throughout nine local parishes. As you’ll see, he’s got a lot to say about the challenges facing the people in those communities.
