Cluny Sisters continue to work in aftermath of devastating earthquake

Written by Sister Benedicte. Posted in Archives

The Sisters of St Joseph of Cluny who have been in Haiti since 1864 have like most people living there have been devasted by the recent earthquake. 

News to date from Port Au Prince has advised that two schools (which caters primarily for poor children) and  a recently constructed orphanage due to be opened soon have been completely destroyed. A medical dispensary has also collapsed yet despite this hundreds of injured people are currently approching the sisters there for help. However with no medical or food supplies the sisters are very limited in what they can do.

 
Our 14 communities in Haiti

 
Some sisters have been injured but thankfully we have suffered no fatalities. The sisters are living in the open and despite having lost everything they continue to assist people in what ever way they can. They are constantly being approached and are very eager to help but are hampered because of lack of basic resources.

We still await news of 12 other communities located in other parts of Haiti.

In order to help our sisters assist those who are most in need an appeal has been launched within the Province of Ireland and Great Britain to raise money quickly for the direct provision of essential aid.
