FUND-RAISING FOR Haiti Hurricane VICTIMS
We are very sad to learn that a few days ago a powerful hurricane devastated a large portion of Haiti, Central America, with a death toll of more than 800 and the destruction of many houses. As an expression of our solidarity with our brethren in Haiti and the relief workers, Cardinal John TONG is asking the faithful to offer special prayers for them. In support of emergency relief, the Cardinal is appealing to parishes to take up donations on 16 October 2016 (Sunday), either by a second collection during Mass or by some other means.
Donation methods are as follows:
By Crossed Cheques
Cheques from parishes and individual donors should be made payable to “Caritas – Hong Kong” (with indication “Hurricane in Haiti” at the back) and sent to the Finance Office, Caritas – Hong Kong, Room 407, Caritas House, 2 Caine Road, Hong Kong. Please indicate donor’s name and address if receipt is needed.
By Direct Bank-in
Donations may be credited directly into Caritas-Hong Kong’s account at ICBC (Asia), Current Account No. 721-010-001606. If receipt is needed, please send the bank-in slip with donor’s name and address indicated to the Finance Office of Caritas – Hong Kong.
Please visit the website of Caritas – Hong Kong: http://www.caritas.org.hk for online donations.
