As we reflect on inspirational women who have fought for the rights we have, and remember how much there still is left to fight for, think of women who battle every day just to stay safe or stay alive, both in our country and in Brazil.
Think of the women in the Casas at ECD, fleeing dangerous situations involving violence and drugs, who fought to protect their children. Let's keep fighting for those women, and keep supporting Encontro Com Deus Brazil, who provide them with shelter and support.

Check out these great pics of the 2019 UK Team sharing their fabulous stories from Brazil with the congregation at St Peter's Church, Woolton, Liverpool. It was such a life-changing experience, and they saw the truly amazing things that ECD do in Brazil.
Think you could get involved or might like to visit Brazil yourself some day? Get in touch!
There have been plenty of sad goodbyes at Encontro Com Deus recently. Our wonderful UK team have had the best time sharing their gifts, talents and passions with the children, mums and babies in Curitiba, Brazil.
Encontro Com Deus really does make a difference : keeping children off the streets, and keeping mums and babies together where they might otherwise be separated due to dangerous situations.
Thank you so much, UK Team, for the way you've blessed everyone this week.
This year, the age span of our fabulous UK team is around 68 years. How amazing to have wonderful people from so many different ages and walks of life spending time with the lovely children of Encontro Com Deus in Curitiba.
What a busy week it has been for Encontro Com Deus! From arts and craft to sport and everything in between, the UK Team have absolutely loved blessing the children and adults at ECD and being blessed in return. The smiles on the faces of the children and adults say it all!
Valentine's day can be a time to think about love, and what greater love is there than between a mother and child? (excepting Jesus' love of course!) This is why we, at ECD, think it is so important that children in Brazil are kept with their mothers, no matter how awful their situation may be. It's so crucial that we keep on doing and supporting this work, so that mothers and children can get back on their feet and be strengthened as a family, no matter what they've been through.
Thank you for all of your support for the project in Curitiba, and if you feel able to, please hit the donate button today so we can fund more amazing work.
