Cuba: 90% of major city’s churches damaged by Hurricane Sandy
Catholic World News - 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.
