The 10th Annual Work Camp returned
On July 24, 2008, forty-seven enthusiastic American
volunteers arrived in Medjugorje to participate
in St. David's Relief Foundation 2008 Volunteer
Work Camp. During the first week, the volunteers
participated in two different work projects in Medjugorje,
consisting of (1) installing electric lights on
the pathway leading up Apparition Hill and (2) assisting
in the construction of a new dining facility to
serve the Merciful Father Community.
The second week of the work camp coincided with
the annual Medjugorje Youth Festival. Over forty
thousand young men and women from all over the world
descended on Medjugorje during first week in August.
