Following the devastating earthquake in Haiti in 2010, the U.S. and Canadian Federations of Sisters of St. Joseph made a commitment to help rebuild the country by educating girls, who are considered the most vulnerable of Haiti’s citizens. The Federations have pledged $325,000 by the year 2022. So far, a total of $169,743.91 has been raised.
The Sisters of St. Joseph of Baden have pledged $25,000 to help educate 10 girls, certify six teachers and rebuild one school. Through the generosity of friends who have contributed to our annual “Lenten Journey to Haiti” projects, our Sisters have raised $23,412.86.
You can help us reach our goal this year with the purchase of beautiful notecards made from the flower drawings, hand-made by our sponsored girls and brought back by Sister Lynn. The cards, sold in sets of four for $10, can be purchased at www.bit.ly/Cards4Haiti.
