Latin American dinner at Rome refugee centre

Joel Nafuma Refugee Center showcases tastes and sounds of Latin America.

17 May. Rome's Joel Nafuma Refugee Center at the American Episcopal Church of Rome, St Paul’s Within the Walls, is holding a Latin American fundraising dinner at 19.30 on Friday 17 May.

The JNRC says it is organising the event to reflect the many Latin Americans it currently serves, refugees and asylum seekers, as well as immigrants learning English, improving their Italian or seeking legal or humanitarian assistance.

The JNRC's chef from Ecuador will first serve a special soup of tuna fish and yuca, named encebollado de pescado, followed by a main course of rice 'Arroz Marinero' with calimari, prawns, maize and peas, with fried plaintain, abundant green salad with potato, carrot and eggs, chilli salsa and a salsa 'boncrina'.

Due to the menu's high seafood/ fish content it is not possible to cater to those who do not eat fish.

Marco Cruz will provide the live Latin American folklore music on guitar and harmonica with a Majagua Band, giving guests the opportunity to dance.

All profits from the charity event will go towards the needs of the guests at the refugee centre.

The donations in aid of JNRC are €20 for adults, €15 students/pensioners and €10 for children under 10. Cash bar.

The event is open to all but guests must reserve their place in advance by emailing For full details see Facebook event page.
