sisters of the most precious blood

Pan y Amor video highlights 'hands, feet of Christ in action'

Recording artist Javier Mendoza and Msgr. Francis X. Blood, director of the archdiocesan Mission Office, sang with some of the boys from Casa Nazareth, a home in Cochabamba, Bolivia, for approximately 25 boys ages 5 to 11. The boys receive formal education and counseling and are taught to be responsible for the home and for each other.

Nearly 20 years ago, Chuck Neff of Salt River Productions traveled to Bolivia to produce a video, "Street Kids of Cochabamba," to promote the Pan y Amor program, which had just been established.

He returned this February with the intention of producing another documentary, possibly to air on a broadcast outlet. He also is making a series of short videos, one of which was just released, highlighting Pan y Amor and his visit.
