Emergency Report from India
Father Roy Thomas SVD writes: “India witnessed the seriousness of the COVID-19 crisis much later than many other countries. We were able to prepare the people living in the slums by increasing awareness and helping make and distribute masks.
“As the pandemic progressed, our missionaries with the permission of local governments, provided food and basic hygiene products to the poor. In our Bujah mission, we provided nourishing food and supplies to 1170 families across 10 villages.”
Emergency Report from the Philippines
Father Heinz Kulüke SVD writes: “All people are affected, especially the poor. Many of the poor families have lost their jobs and already low income as day laborers. The poor have no reserves and no insurance. The crisis has escalated so quickly that there was hardly any time to prepare for the current situation. Many families are already afraid of not having enough food. We are in the process of providing approximately 33,000 pounds of rice, canned sardines, and dried fish to the slums in Cebu to keep families in need afloat.”
