WelCom June/July 2023
YCC Day is the day when Caritas combines with Catholic schools across New Zealand to stand together in solidarity for a good cause and raise funds and awareness for a selected focus school.
This year Caritas is supporting Oecusse School in Timor-Leste for YCC Day, Friday 30 June 2023.
‘New Zealand Catholic schools can help Oecusse School while having a fun, non-uniform day for a gold coin,’ says Caritas Aotearoa New Zealand. ‘Our bishops are excited about the event and about us all joining in solidarity with the school. Your gold coin will help provide working toilets for Oecusse School, which has more than 800 students and no working toilets. It’s in great need of support to repair and replace broken, unsanitary toilet bowls; repair handwashing stations in the toilet facilities; and fix water pipes for supplying water to different areas in the school.
‘Join us on Friday 30 June and show them you care.’
