Haiti Relief Fund News:
An Invitation to assist our brothers and sisters in Haiti
My name is Charlie Moran and I work with the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal in the Bronx. For the past 12 years, I have been leading mission trips to a village called Rivere Friode in Carrefour, Haiti. Working with the local community of the Little Brothers of St. Therese, we feed their poor, provide medical supplies and treatments, and build houses and latrines.
Each year, our number of missionaries grows, as does the amount of work we do. A few weeks ago, the people of Haiti were hit hard again by Hurricane Matthew. Fortunately, the people of River Friode survived, as did the houses and latrines that we have built. However, massive mudslides washed away all of the crops, destroying the village’s main supply of food. As it is, most Haitians only eat every 3 days. Now, the situation is dire and they are in need of our help! We have already been sending down barrels of food, medicine and shoes, but it will be 6 weeks before they arrive in Haiti.
We are running an emergency fundraising drive so that the Brothers can purchase food and supplies as soon as possible and we need your help! I am asking each parishioner to prayerfully consider donating money to send down to the people of Haiti. I can assure you that 100% of the proceeds will go directly to the people to meet their current and future needs. To see more about what we do in Haiti, visit our website at www.friarsuppliers.com.
