The brothers are accompanying the victims

Three places have attracted our attention following the natural catastrophes that have hit millions of people in less than fifteen days: Central America, Mexico and Pakistan.

Hurricane Stan hit Central America. The letter from Brother Adolfo Cermeño, Provincial of América Central, published on the webpage on Saturday 15th October 2005, gave some global information on the situation of the brothers and their works. The most affected country was Guatemala where more than six hundred communities have been affected by the catastrophe. The victims need, food, shelter and health assistance.

Central Mexico
Brother Fernando MejĂ­a, Provincial of MĂ©xico Central, has given a detailed report on the state of the communities affected by Hurricane Stan. The brothers have not suffered any damage but there are many populations and communities with whom they work that have been severely affected.
The brothers are working with those in need of help with material aid.

Brother Michael de Wass, Provincial of Sri Lanka and Pakistan, sent a brief communiqué in which he said that the brothers, postulants and aspirants, as well as their families, have not been directly affected by the earthquake which has caused more than 40,000 deaths. Even though the brothers live in the province of Pendjab, they felt the tremor quite strongly but suffered no material damage. The regions that have been most affected are in the northern, mountainous parts of the country. Brother concluded his communiqué by thanking the brothers for the concern shown from the General House and he asked that we pray for those who have lost their loved ones and their houses.
