URGENT REQUEST FOR PRAYER SUPPORT FOR MADRAS FLOOD VICTIMS

 

Dear Faithful,

Following the flooding of the city of Madras (India) and its surroundings caused by torrential rains for almost 10 uninterrupted days, the condition of the population (6,000,000 inhabitants) is becoming increasingly difficult and dangerous to health. 
One of our faithful, Marylin Venkatesh, writes that people are traumatized: stagnant water and uncollected garbage are now causing epidemics. The city is paralyzed, the airport still closed, supply problems are worsening. 

The faithful of our St. Anthony of Padua Chapel are also affected: they ask for your prayers and your moral support. As they often live in poor conditions, it will be difficult for them to repair the damage caused by the flood to their houses. 

If you want to help them and send a donation:

  • please click on this link and follow the instructions and contact us by email: [email protected] (to let us know your donation is for the "Chennai Flood Victims")
  • or send a check to the General House of the SSPX (Schloss Schwandegg, CH-6313 Menzingen), or to the headquarters of the district of Asia : Priory Saint Pius X, 286 Upper Thomson Road, Singapore 574402 (with the mention: for the "Chennai Flood Victims")

A big "thank you" on behalf of our Madras faithful, especially for your generous prayers.

Father Karl Stehlin, 
District Superior of Asia
