Urgent Need in Venezuela for Your Help

As you are probably aware, the situation in Venezuela has gone from bad to worse!  People are dying daily from lack of food, clean water and medicine.  We at Stewards of Hope have vamped up our efforts to help some of the people in need but the need is just too great for our resources.  We currently are supplying 31 boxes of food and supplies every two weeks to the Missionaries of Charity to spread out among their 7 homes across the country.  In addition, we have also decided to help out and old friend,  Father Angel Castillo, and his parish in  Barquisimeto.  We currently are sending him 20 boxes of supplies every 2-3 weeks but it isn't in any way near enough.  We Need YOUR HELP to keep up what we are doing and to increase the help we are providing.  For that reason, we have initiated a campaign called EMERGENCY FOOD FUND AND ANGEL APPEAL.  Our goal is to raise $15,000 to assist with the next few months of support and to get enough monthly sponsorship commitments, 50 donors at the $30 level, to be able to maintain what we are doing in the future for as long as this assistance is needed.  Please join us by making a one time donation toward the Emergency Food Fund as well as by becoming a monthly donor through the Angel Appeal.  A $30 monthly sponsorship will supply 84 specially fortified meals to people who are desperately in need of them.
