Our Mission > Drought Relief Donation

Drought in Papua New Guinea

Thank you for all of your prayers and support for our Capuchin missionaries, especially in Papua New Guinea.

As you may know, the people of Papua New Guinea are suffering a horrible drought. Gardens, which supply almost all of their daily food, have dried up. In some areas of the Southern Highlands the situation is becoming desperate.

Our own Capuchin Bishop Don Lippert is heading up relief efforts for his people.

There is still great need. And even when the rains return - as we pray they soon will - it will be several months until the gardens produce food for the families and villages.

I know that Bishop Don is struggling to meet the needs. He and his priests are distributing emergency food to all the people.

Would you help Bishop Don help his people?

May God bless you for your faithful generosity. I can assure you that Bishop Don, his priests and all of the Capuchin friars are already lifting you and your needs up in prayer.

Any gift from the heart, and according to one's means,
is greatly appreciated:
