Cuba: 90% of major city’s churches damaged by Hurricane Sandy

December 14, 2012

Seven weeks after Hurricane Sandy ravaged Cuba, hundreds of thousands of residents remain homeless, according to Bishop Luis del Castillo Estrada, a Uruguayan Jesuit bishop who has served as a missionary in Cuba since his retirement.

The dioceses of Uruguay are providing financial support to assist those left homeless.

The prelate added that 90% of the churches around Santiago de Cuba, the nation’s second-largest city, have suffered damage, including the National Shrine Basilica of Our Lady of Charity.
