"At a recent meeting of Arcaid, a registered charity, but run by parishioners of St. Joan of Arc, Farnham, we had the privilege of viewing two short films about projects to which Arcaid contributes. One, with commentary by Ron Potter, was about the building of safe cooking facilities for families in rural Tanzania, as apparently many children get horrific burns by sleeping next to the open cooking fire.
The second was a film and talk given by Ruth Wooldridge OBE about her initiative to bring Palliative Care to terminally-ill patients in Kenya and other African countries.
