In March a tropical cyclone hit the island of Madagascar destroying lots of houses and leaving many homeless people and destroying infrastructure. Recently we have received a request from the OFS National Minister of Madagascar, Gérard Cécilien Raboanary, if we can help them in some way. He told us that the northern part of Madagascar was the most affected. Several members of the Secular Franciscans have housing problems at present.

 

In photos the damage on the church can be seen, as well as some schools and homes of some Secular Franciscans. These mentioned infrastructures are very useful infrastructures for Christians, especially for the secular Franciscans and for the pupils. The parish priest of the destroyed church is a diocesan priest in formation to make profession to the OFS.

In some regions OFS members who work in fields have suffered a major agricultural problem due to the flood. Thus the National Council of the OFS Madagascar asks us for support in providing the necessary measures to restore the damage.
