Help the Church in India
The Church in India is currently in the grip of Covid. Millions of poor people have therefore come back to the Church as their only help. Priests and sisters are distributing food and clothes and many Church-run schools have become quarantine centres. ACN is helping priests and religious sisters minister to one of the world’s most populous countries.
14 Catholic priests have died in India between 20-23 April alone. Archbishop Mons. Anil Couto, Archbishop of Delhi, spoke to ACN about the situation in his diocese expressing that it is "stressful due to the overwhelming number of cases and a constant shortage of oxygen and even staff. As in the rest of the country, we cannot provide beds to all the patients wanting admission and such patients are treated in the emergency itself till a bed is available. There is no preferential treatment in our hospital; patients are admitted on a first-come first-served basis. People have trust in the Holy Family Hospital because we have a long-established tradition of good nursing care by God's grace. Our doctors and nurses try to give very personal attention to every patient."
Please consider giving what you can to help our brothers and sisters in India who are suffering unimaginable hardships.
