Albertus asks students to help with Haiti

The Campus Ministry Team at Albertus will join the national and international community in offering our help to the people of Haiti.

Tuesday is the beginning of the new semester, and we will focus our efforts on seeking monetary donations which will be forwarded to Catholic Relief Services (CRS) which operate an office in the capital of Port-au-Prince. The CRS office in the capital is constantly monitoring and updating the conditions each day.

CRS has made an initial commitment of 5 million dollars for immediate use in this relief effort. They are mobilizing food and gearing up their emergency capacity and deploying emergency shelter and hygiene kits from the neighboring Dominican Republic.
