After the recent news published on Saturday, the general house press office received futher information regarding the damage caused by hurricane Matthew in Haiti.

There were no news of the Marists in Dame-Marie, where the Brothers also have a primary and a secondary school. Brother Parnel César went to the site by motorcycle, seeing that the two schools have been destroyed.

The homes of the families of several brothers were also completely destroyed, but the members are well.

Brother Guillermo Villareal, of the provincial headquarters, announced that the Marist works “do not need medicine, food or clothing, which is already arriving. The most urgent need is reconstruction.”

“The schools could possibly reopen within a month or a month and a half,” he affirmed.

Brother Enrique Escobar, of Guadalajara wrote on Oct. 10, “I know the Haitian people is strong and find strength to start again, and I know we can do something.”

“There is an urgent need for aid and for reconstruction,” he continued. “There is a concern that beats in our hearts, how can we help people to be fortified?”

FMSI has already a small emergency fund available to send to the Mexico Occidental Province, which is responsible for the Marist mission in Haiti, and is currently trying to get an estimate of the damage.

Further information on how to help will be available in the next few days.
