India is in crisis. The country is battling a growing humanitarian disaster, as the coronavirus pandemic spreads and claims more lives every day.
As of recent official reports, more than 390,000 people in India have died from COVID-19, and the numbers grow by the hour. The need is urgent.
CNEWA is rushing aid to our partners on the ground, to help distribute vaccines, PPE equipment, food and health care. But it is impossible to keep up with the demand. Please give whatever you can to our brothers and sisters in India.
And we ask that you join us in prayer.
Pope Francis has called on Catholics around the world to join in praying the rosary during May, asking Our Lady to intercede to bring an end to the pandemic. And we ask you to please include in your intentions Bishop Jacob Mar Barnabas Aerath, who has personally overseen many pandemic relief efforts throughout northern India, and is currently in critical condition due to COVID-19.
Our Lady of Good Health, pray for us!
Thank you for your support and prayers during this desperate time.
