Attacks on religious sisters in Haiti

March 13, 2015

Women religious in Haiti have been the object of repeated gang attacks, the Fides news agency reported.

“Since November 2014 to the present day about 20 houses belonging to the nuns have been attacked; religious women beaten, brutalized,” said Cardinal Chibly Langlois. “Without being disturbed, looters take everything they can: money, identity documents, important documents and other valuables.”

    A deacon I know has visited Haiti in company of a priest who does medical mission work there and my friend the deacon found Haiti horrifyingly unsafe, because of scary drivers, crime, etc. There was also a huge problem with "Catholics" who also practiced voodoo. They are in so great need of the good influence of the sisters.
