Pro Labore Dei started a branch in Guelph, Canada through the efforts of Dr. Esther E. Uchendu, who was the first assigned missionary on July 24th 2010. The first office was located at 141 Woolwich Street but we later moved to 40 We use the services of volunteers to accomplish its goals and objectives. These people volunteer many hours and sometimes their money to meet the needs of others in the community and in turn improve their career, by gaining experience working with people at the grassroots level.
After carefully determining the various needs of the disadvantaged people in the community, our main services in the city of Guelph included providing home cooked meals every Friday during dinner time from 5.00pm to 6.30pm, to people of low or no income in the community and those who were unable to cook for medical reasons. These meals were prepared with much love, and under hygienic conditions. The program provided clients a forum for social interaction and friendship building. There were testimonies of how this program and our other services positively impacted the lives of the beneficiaries.
The PLD center also promoted community involvement by exploring and integrating the efforts of well meaning members of the community and small businesses who were committed to helping the needy. We sourced and provided basic supplies to clients for personal care. These supplies were obtained through donations from members of the community. We also provided support services for the aged, and advisory services based on personal experiences. We encouraged our clients to volunteer with us; this gave them a sense of fulfillment that they are able to give back to the community despite their social or health status. We started a once-a-month outreach meals program.
At Pro Labore Dei, we provide food, basic supplies, counselling and other programs to persons with little or no income.
We aim to provide support services, safety, personal care, housekeeping, nursing and shopping assistance to aged persons.
We are a registered charity, run by volunteers. Our volunteers come from a variety of backgrounds and denominations. We are united by our desire to serve God in our fellow human beings.
