nå er det lett å støtte våre irakiske søstre!

Nå er det lett å støtte søstrene i Irak! Caritas har opprettet egen donasjonsside her. Tidligere i november sendte sr. Maria Hanna nedenstående oversikt over hva midler, innsamlet gjennom DSI (Dominican Sisters International), hadde gått til. Sist mandag møtte jeg tre av våre irakiske søstre i Stockholm – de bor der og arbeider primært blant sine landsmenn i Södertälje og Gøteborg. De forteller også om store sosiale problemer blant flyktningene. Barna får ingen skolegnag, de unge kan ikke fortsette med utdannelsen, og plassmangel og knapphet på ressurser sliter på familiene. Men de har nå – siden dette brevet ble skrevet – også anskaffet campingvogner for flyktningene så de slipper å bo i telt vinteren igjennom. De trenger fortsatt både forbønn og penger! Bruk Caritas donasjonsside!

Les sr. Maria Hannas brev:

Dominican Sisters of St. Catherine Of Siena, Iraq. Erbil, Ankawa, 114\2014

Dear All,

First of all, let me express my deep gratitude to each one of you along with our prayers. Your contribution during this time of catastrophe is very much appreciated, and it is, indeed, priceless. I would like to inform you that we have spent some of the money you sent for paving a piece of land, at the yard of our convent in Ankawa/Erbil, to set up the containers, and provide electricity and water supplies, and furnishing the rooms of the containers. Additionally, because the number of the sisters increased, we provided the convent with more accommodating equipments. Work was not only done in Erbil, but in the city of Duhok as well -19 sisters went to stay in our convent there. We are grateful to God who put you on our way.

We also bought three thousand blankets and three thousand mattresses for the refugees who were renting houses without being provided food and bedding supplies. The sisters helped distributing the items with a group of young people.

It is already winter, and Erbil’s weather is rainy and cold. People will need more blankets, comforters, and portable heaters. We are trying to find some supplies with decent price to include as many people as we can.

May God bless your efforts, work, and strengthen you. The expenses I referred to are:

Details

Money

Paving the ground, and setting sanitary sewers and electricity cables for the containers

44,513,000 (IQD)

Furnishing the containers and the rooms in two convents (Ankawa, Duhok)

39, 341,000 (IQD)

Purchasing three thousand blankets, and three thousand mattresses

91,500,000 (IQD)

Total (IQD
equivalent to US dollar $ 144,920,61

175,354,000 IQD

Unfortunately, this is our reality. What hurts most is the fact that there is no positive scenario or any promising sign for better future. Immigration is so extensive and every-day we ask: «Until when and what is next?»
