Mattresses for flood victims in Timor-Leste
After Cyclone Seroja hit Timor-Leste on Easter Sunday this year, heavy rain resulted in flash floods and landslides that damaged 28,000 households and resulted in 48 fatalities.
With your generous support, our partner Jesuit Social Service (JSS) responded to the flood crisis by providing emergency food supplies, mattresses and kitchen utensils for families significantly affected by the floods.
One of the affected households included Domingas and her three kids who live in Becora, Dili.
Fortunately Domingas and her family were also one of 330 households that were given mattresses and kitchen supplies by Jesuit Social Service, allowing her family to find hope in such difficult circumstances and to rebuild their lives.
Let us join together in the Prayer of Restoring Consolation, written by Fr Michael Hansen SJ, National Director of the First Spiritual Exercises Program.
