Since the eruption of Merapi last week we have been busy trying to help some of the people who are currently staying in temporary shelters.  Our focus at the moment is on sending emergency supplies to those who have been evacuated.  So far we have been able to buy and send drinking water, nutritious drinks, baby food and baby milk, sleeping mats for both adults and children, blankets , children and baby clothes, medical supplies and cooked food.  Being part of an international religious congregation means that we have extra financial resources to call on at a time like this – which is a big help.  Also in practical terms – it would not be possible to help many people if we worked alone – we are blessed to have a great network of friends to rely on – both young and old.  We have worked together cooking food and bagging supplies.  Thank God for teamwork!  We are grateful for all of your support and prayer at this time.
