The "Misión Abuelos" project in Cuba has a double purpose. First it is a nutrition and care for the elderly program, particularly for those who live alone and lack the means to support themselves. Second, it offers the community at large an opportunity to exercise our Christian love by demonstrating our solidarity with those in need. You can help by sponsoring an elderly person. Your $20 monthly donation will provide one complete and balanced hot meal five times a week for one elderly person. You can subscribe securely by clicking here. You may unsubscribe at any time. We thank you for your support.

Misyon Ayiti: An tout solidarite avèc frè
ak sè nou ki ayisyen
Haiti's earthquake on February 2010 left Port-au-Prince and the surrounding towns in ruins. Many of the surviving families lost their dwelling places. The earthquake also destroyed schools, churches, and medical facilities, making it much harder to help those in greatest need in the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere.
The Missionary Society John Paul II is working with the Daughters of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul in the construction of temporal facilities so that the sister may continue their missionary and educational work in Haiti.
