They want to keep their children safe, and need our help.

Imagine living in a neighborhood where your child’s well-being was in constant peril – by wild beasts. Jackals, in fact.

We often take for granted the feeling of safety and security in our neighborhoods. We wake up, make a cup of coffee, greet our loved ones, take the dog for a walk, drive to work, and we trust that everyone will be safe. It is very easy to take our blessings for granted, including the safety of our children.

The Daughters of Charity of St. Vincent De Paul in Dembi Dollo, Ethiopia want to keep their children safe. But they need our help – to keep the jackals from the nearby jungle out of the playground and school.

In their tireless pursuit of the Gospel and their love for the poor, the sisters seek to create a loving, secure, and stable environment of education for their students.

Your generous gifts to the NCCL apostolate has allowed the sisters to pursue a new project for which they have expressed their deepest gratitude. See the e-mail exchange, copied below.

The fence is up, and the jackals are out – at least, at bay.

Their current proposal to meet ongoing needs is to build a small school and dormitory for the children to provide an education in a building that offers students safety and stability. Such a building will bring about tangible security and the relief from the pain of fear. We can easily see how this new building will have a direct impact on the fruitfulness of instruction time and the overall well being of the students. Harder to see is that every day of education the Sisters provide the children means they and their families do not have to flee their homeland, risk falling into the hands of ruthless human-traffickers, and can build a stabler local community.

With your continued prayers and financial contributions you can help the Sisters keep their children safe – and sound, for decades to come.

Thank you very much, dear Sister, for writing.

Thank goodness the gift has arrived in your bank account.

It would, I believe, be lovely to visit Ethiopia one day. Please God it will happen under gracious circumstances, before too long — that is, before I am too old and too grey!

Meanwhile, we shall do what we can to help the Sisters to sustain the Charity — in the north or the south of Ethiopia — for which you are blessed forever.

Humbly in Christ,
Gregory

P.S. I am a laymen, married 28 years to a beautiful Wife, Susan Rachel, with whom I am father of seven children — and now two grand-children. Deo gratias!

Reverend and dear Sister Alganesh,

Christ is risen!

Thank you very much for your kind e-mail, copied below. Please forgive my silence until now.

I write, belatedly, to confirm that today I have finally initiated a transfer of $1,000 USD from the benefactors of our humble apostolate who wish to make, as a start, a small contribution to your divine work for The Lord Christ’s poor who are in your care.

Sister Bisirat had sent to me the project proposal to build a kindergarten or small elementary school for the children. If this small gift can help advance that project to completion, we thank God. However, please use the gifts for whatever poor or project that you Sisters judge most in need.

Our benefactors are praying for the success of your mission and every good work for Christ. We hope to send more in the near future.

The gifts are being sent by wire transfer, via the Western Union banking service.

The following information should help you to identify the transaction:

1. The account number at the Commercial Bank of Ethiopia to which I directed the transfer of the gifts was 100xxxxxxxx.

2. The name on account given by Western Union to your bank is —
[ – redacted – ]
ATTN Rev. Sr. Bisirat Misgina, D.C.
Daughters of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul
St. Joseph Community Convent
Western Wollega
Dembi Dolo Sayyo Woreda, ET

Please also note:

1. The Western Union transaction identification number is 68xxxxxx.
2. The recipient listed in the transaction is [redacted – Daughters of Charity Danka Poor].
3. Today I scheduled the electronic transfer to the Commercial Bank [redacted].

As soon as Western Union notifies me that the bank-to-bank transfer has been accomplished, I shall notify you.

4. The amount transferred is $1,000 US.
5. The equivalent amount transferred in Ethiopian Birr is 20,703.93 ETB.

In an e-mail to follow (probably) next week, I expect to send to you a written confirmation of the transaction which Western Union customarily sends me to notify of the accomplishment of the transaction.

Although I and some of the other Directors of the NCCL apostolate are Eastern Catholics, we today celebrate the feast of Our Lord’s glorious Ascension into Heaven, since we use a Western (secular) calendar. I therefore greet you, cordially in The Ascended Lord.

Christ is gloriously ascended!

Gregory

Rev. Gregory,

i AM Sr Alganesh, Sr Bisirat’s companion. i am just writing to introduce my self

She told me good things about you we are grateful for your generosity to our people

Sister told me she sent a project proposal to you hoping you will find some money our area here is very green but very very back warded the technology is very poor due to that the people are very poor and we are struggling to help them in education to learn help themselves

At the moment the Cross road construction is building the roads our girls our children and our selves are out in the open we fear one day the wild animals will go in and eat them we find hard to find people to sponsor contractions.

Hope you will be able to help our projects

When it is possible please come and visit our area
