Hunger for the Word of God ... and Hunger of bread ...

And hunger for bread ...

We have already told many times about our work with the Amity Printing in China: a group of people who came to be so friendly and grew into a family bonding.

The Amity Printing is part of the Amity Foundation, which has many charitable and cultural activities. One of these activities is a bakery which employs people with intellectual disability ... or with physical disabilities.
The Chinese text says: "Committed to help find employment for people with intellectual disabilities."
This bakery is located in Nanjing (the same city where the printing press is situated). Around a third of employees working here are affected with mental disabilities. It's called "Ai De Bakery" or "Amity Bakery". These people have an intellectual level of children of 5 or 6 years and they have three bakeries in Nanjing. "Here is bread and love" says the poster.

It happened that this news hit the blogs in four days and attracted more than 20,000 hits and 1,500 comments. One of the people who discovered this blog on the internet says: "I immediately went to the site of Amity and after reading the news, bought 5 boxes, all delicious ... Love is different than giving alms. To teach these people to live with independence and dignity is far greater charity to give alms. I hope others will also cooperate. "
