Support St. Francis Catholic Health Care Center in Wassera, Ethiopia
The Franciscan Missionary Sisters of Christ care for families in the remote village of Wassera, in southern Ethiopia. The villagers, already facing drought and destitution, are now contending with COVID-19 and its effects. In response, the sisters turned to CNEWA for emergency support.
With your help, the sisters aim to serve 1,100 people who come to the clinic’s door in desperation. Without food and hygiene supplies, they and their children are at especially high risk of severe COVID-19. To help, the sisters are stocking their clinic with supplies, including N95 masks, gloves and thermometers, and are putting together food kits for those most in need.
Hand sanitizer, soap, wheat, beans and flour are basic necessities, but for these families they are a gift of hope amid months of despair.
