Helping Haiti

Dear Believers
On the 12th of January 2010, a devastating earthquake hit the city Porau-Prince, the capital of the State of Haiti. It is estimated that 75,000 people have died. Hundreds of thousands of people have been injured or remain without shelter, supplies, or water. The hospitals in Haiti, which were also gravely affected, can not do more to help the situation and thousands of injured people are receiving no aid or even basic medical needs.
Even though the offices of Caritas Haiti were completely destroyed and the director of the organization, archbishop Joseph Serge Miot, died following the earthquake, Caritas Haiti immediately began to support the population. In the meantime, the first specialized teams from Caritas organizations from Europe and America arrived. They brought medical equipment, supplies to provide drinkable water (filters, purifiers, etc), and also special tents which will be used for temporary shelters.
In the sign of fellowship with people affected by the earthquake, The Catholic Bishopric Conference from Romania proposes that the Caritas Romania Confederation organizes a collection in the churches of Romania on 31st of January 2010 to contribute to the welfare and rehabilitation programs implemented through Caritas Internationalis Network.
The special collection on 31st of January 2010 will be held in every parish, and then the donated funds will be given to „Caritas Eparhial Oradea” until 16 February, at the latest.
For individuals and organizations interested in donating the following account can be used to make your donations in euro: Asociaţia Caritas Eparhial Oradea, IBAN: RO10 BTRL 0050 4205 7261 6902, BANCA TRANSILVANIA ORADEA, SWIFT CODE BTRL RO22BHA
Please specify this donation with „Colecta Haiti”
We ask all believers to join in this movement with a spirit of Christian fellowship as preached in the Gospel. May the Lord repay you for the good that you have done and may Mary, The Holy Mother, protect you
