Donations needed to rebuild Chantal Haiti

Hurricane Matthew has caused catastrophic damage in Chantal.   90 % of homes are either totally destroyed or without roofs. The dispensary itself is intact but the nun’s home is damaged beyond repair.  Sister Mona and the other nuns are living in a room of the dispensary. The school roof for L’Ecole de Ste Jeanne, the priest’s school, and the public school are all without roofs and some of the smaller schools are destroyed. Other civic structures in the village are severely damaged and many churches have no roofs. Livestock, crops, and the beautiful fruit trees were washed away.
Funds for roofing tin,  pharmaceuticals, and clinic supplies are desperately needed.  Sister Mona, our wonderful partner on the ground, has identified shelter for the most vulnerable who do not have families who can assist them, as the first priority.  Here is the donation process for Hurricane relief:
To donate by check send donations to:
Rev. Yves Francois
Sacred Heart Church
901 SW 6th Street
Okeechobee, FL 34974
All donations are tax deductible.
To donate on-line go to:
Father Yves and Dr.Sarah John are currently in Chantal assessing the damage.  Intentions are to still conduct a mission trip in January 2017  but that will depend on their assessment.  Further details will follow.   As stated by Fr. Yves:  “Thanks for your help! Remember, whatever you do for the least of your brothers, you do it for Jesus Himself. Let’s put a roof over the head of Jesus! God bless you! “
