Fr. Sy’s African Appeal

Every year, I ask friends and family to help me make a difference in VINCENTIAN AFRICA. I don’t “mail” my appeal letters to my St. Vincent’s family, but they are in the back of the church. I hope that you would take one and read it. Pray about it. You have been so wonderful in your support and in bringing Hope to so many. Thank you. There is no time when this must be done. You will not receive endless requests for more. This is a once a year appeal with several great projects that you can help with like:

  • The St. Vincent Youth Center in Mekelle, Ethiopia offering a library, tutoring, and other activities + HIV/AIDS awareness for impoverished youth.
  • Building a house for an impoverished family in Tunisia.
  • Purchase of a vehicle for the Vincentian parish and agrarian school in Magube, Mozambique, a very poor rural area.
  • Supply tanks and pipes to bring clean water to the impoverished village of Changrawe, Tanzania.
