Do not forsake the work of your hands!


The drought in East Africa, complicated by political instability in Somalia, has led to desperate conditions for millions of people.  Your Church is responding through Catholic Relief Services (CRS) that has worked in the region for decades.  Many CRS projects that you have supported over the years have made communities better able to withstand this drought.  Many others are still suffering, including Somalis who live beyond the reach of humanitarian aid and are fleeing to neighboring countries seeking help.  CRS is responding to their needs.  Please show your solidarity in the following ways:

·    Please pray for the people of East Africa.

·    Donate to the East Africa Emergency Fund; checks payable to Catholic Relief Services can be sent to the Office for Social Concerns, 197 East Gay St., Columbus, OH 43215 – write “East African Fund” in the memo section

·    Learn more:  contact the diocesan CRS director at 614-241-2540 or; and visit: for continuous updates on our response.
