US bishops award additional grants to Haiti
CWN - July 26, 2010
The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Subcommittee on the Church in Latin America has recently awarded $212,700 in grants to ten projects in Haiti. The January 12 earthquake there killed some 230,000 people and left a million homeless.
Among the projects funded were evangelization programs, seminarian education, and the purchase of a truck to remove rubble from destroyed parishes.
