Helping our neighbors in the Philippines
It is overwhelming to hear of the millions who are left with nothing in the aftermath of Super Typhoon Haiyan. For many years Bethany Health Care Center, a sponsored ministry of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Boston, has employed health care professionals from the Philippines. We have learned that the families of two of our current employees have been directly impacted by the deadly path of destruction left by the typhoon. The staff and residents of Bethany are reaching out to respond to these employees and their families.
They have told us that their families and their families’ neighbors need lightweight summer clothing for all ages and in all sizes. We encourage you to send lightweight clothing and/or a financial donation to support this effort.
All donations can be sent to:
Philippines Disaster Relief
Attention: Jacquelyn McCarthy, CSJ
Bethany Health Care Center
97 Bethany Road
Framingham, MA 01702-2737
Checks should be made payable to Bethany Health Care Center. Bethany will then forward one check to each of the families affected by this terrible disaster.
This may seem like a small contribution in the midst of an enormous need. But we are assured that these donations will find their way directly to the relatives and friends of our Bethany Health Care Center employees who are in such urgent need at this time.
May we keep all in prayer,
Rosemary, CSJ, for the Leadership Team
