Marists for Haiti

20/04/2010: Brazil

The Marist Union of Brasil (Umbrasil) is in train of promoting a fund-raising campaign to help the victims of the earthquake which devastated Haiti last February. It is launching the Marist Campaign for Haiti for this purpose.

According to Umbrasil’s executive secretary, Brother João Carlos do Prado, this campaign wishes to contribute to a national mobilisation in supporting humanitarian projects, principally those which propose to provide help for children and Haitian youth, especially orphans.

As a first step, the campaign aims to obtain financial support, then it will offer aid and a helping hand for the reconstruction of the country; later, according to Brother João Carlos, the campaign will endeavour to mobilise the public of the organisations of Marist Brasil, while keeping the Marist character of action in solidarity.

Umbrasil is acting as such as partner of « Cáritas Brasileira » which has opened a current account exclusively for the Marist mobilisation. The Campaign also counts on the support of the National Bishops Conference of Brasil (CNBB), the Marist International Solidarity Foundation (FMSI) and the Conference of Religious of Brasil (CRB).
