Necessary assistance

the Inland Register

(From the December 19, 2013 edition of the Inland Register)

Pictured is Cruz Tum Guarchay, leader and catechist of Xecalbal, an outlying community of Ixtahuacán, Guatemala, receiving hats and scarves made by the women of Holy Rosary Parish, Pomeroy, Wash. Due to storm damage of 2012, this community moved to a higher and colder location with neither running water nor electricity. Cruz’s son, Ricardo Moises Tumcoy, is confined to a wheelchair permanently and they are in great need of financial assistance. Ricardo is disabled both physically and mentally, and his family has faithfully cared for him for many years. Ongoing financial sponsorship of $40/month would be greatly beneficial to this family. For information about sponsorship, email Donna Connell of the diocese’s Guatemala Commission – dconnell@comcast.net – or call (509) 924 1346. (IR photo courtesy of Donna Connell)
