Missionaries of the Poor Appeal

Missionaries of the Poor Appeal

On behalf of ‘The Missionaries of the Poor’ I would like to thank St Rita’s once again for your amazing generosity. I was able to meet the last container that arrived in December. Perfect timing as always. Your donations were unpacked and distributed to many grateful people. Books, clothing, guitars, sporting goods, toys, toiletries, medications and building supplies have been put to good use by the brothers and the local families. The monastery continues to rise and now has roof trusses going on. There is a huge push for the monastery to be opened early, which means we are again in real need of funding. Toilets and showers need to be ready for 30 young men, who are joining the Missionaries of the Poor, to begin their training this year.

I am asking for monetary donations so toilets and basins can be purchased in Timor Leste. This helps the local economy. Two Hot Water Services are also needed and can only be purchased here.  So, if you would like to ‘Help with Hot Water’, ‘Donate a Dunny’ or ‘Buy a Basin’, please contact me, knowing that your donation will leave a lasting legacy for Missionaries of the Poor and the work they do in Timor Leste and many places throughout the world.

God Bless

Tony Harris
