Emergency Needs to Victims of Hurricane and Earthquakes

EMERGENCY NEEDS TO VICTIMS OF HURRICANE AND EARTHQUAKES IN
Cuba, Mexico, Puerto Rico, and Central America

 

Dear Sisters and Mission Partners,
We would like to share with you some brief information about the situation of our sisters in Mexico, Puerto Rico, Cuba, and Central America - the areas that were affected by earthquakes and hurricanes which caused widespread destruction across the Caribbean. This phenomenon generated the destruction of electricity and telephone networks; floods destroyed hundreds of homes with total and partial landslides; and a large number of families were left homeless and lost their property, such as equipment, furniture, clothing and household supplies.
Because of the destruction of telephone and electrical networks, it has been difficult to receive detailed information from the sisters up until now. However, we do know that:

  • The sisters are relatively well although there are severe damages in the neighborhoods where they live; the trees tore through the houses as a result of the hurricane.
  •  Although some of our houses were affected in the different areas, the sisters opened their doors to welcome people and to share the little they had with them.
  • Until now we have not been able to contact our sisters in Chiapas, Mexico, as there is no way to communicate with them, but we trust in God’s Mercy.

We are sharing this information with you so that together we can contribute to help the affected people to rebuild their lives and the infrastructure after these disasters. If Sisters, Mission Partners and Friends wish to send contributions on behalf of our international Congregation, please direct them to one of the following:
