Hunters’ Associate supports Betel Children’s Home in Brazil

Katie Martin, an Associate in the Private Client Department, has recently returned from visiting Betel Children’s Home in Brazil.

Betel is in the state of Goias, central Brazil, about 120km from the capital, Brasilia. The Home was set up over 30 years ago by a Brazilian pastor and his wife. Since then this remarkable place has provided a home for over 2,000 abused or abandoned children, some of whom had been living on the streets.

Katie has been supporting Betel for over 20 years, first visiting in 1989, and on five subsequent occasions, undertaking voluntary work for a month or so each time as part of a summer team.  Katie’s previous trips have usually involved a building or maintenance project and also various activities and outings with the children.

Katie is a trustee of Betel Children’s Home UK which raises funds to pay the wages of the staff at the Home.  This year she visited with four of her co-trustees and had a wonderful time catching up with all her friends who work at Betel, spending time with the children, and being involved in planning for Betel’s future.
