SIS­TER ANN’S MIS­SION TO HAITI

Another suc­cess­ful year of fundrais­ing has been com­pleted. In July with the sup­port and gen­eros­ity of Louise, The Chair Yoga Group at Árus Lor­cáin do­nated €305.50. Cora Jones from O’Domhaill Rua, Red­cross ran a raf­fle which re­al­ized €500.

These events helped to swell the fund to €6,000. In turn €5,000 was do­nated by An Garda Síochána and since the pre­sen­ta­tion to Sis­ter Ann another €1,000 was given pri­vately. One cou­ple also spon­sored a child for one year in school. This year two houses will be built. Re­main­ing funds will be used for school­ing and other nec­es­sary needs.

Dur­ing the last months so many hearts were lifted to ac­tion in the name of Christ bring­ing love, hope and life it­self to the poor of Haiti and light­en­ing Sis­ter Ann’s load as she faces into a new year of work.
