2021 Columban Mid-Year Appeal

"To speak of hope to those who are desperate,
it is essential to share their desperation"
Pope Francis

Recently, Fr Tim Mulroy, the Columban Society Leader, was asked how the pandemic has impacted the people in the poor countries where Columbans work. He said it was hard to imagine that life could be any worse for so many, but the reality is that millions of people have been left homeless and hungry.

Fr Mulroy also said, that without access to health care, social services and limited employment prospects, hope for the future seems a distant dream for so many.

In Myanmar, a country already devastated by war and the pandemic, unrest has escalated because of the coup. Working in Myanmar for many years, Columban Fr Neil Magill is shocked at the plight of the people.

In Pakistan, where people have endured the last ten years of drought, heatwaves and diseases killing thousands of people, the poverty is nothing like it has ever been before, said Columban Fr Tomás King.

I ask you to use the below options to support the Columban Mid-Year Appeal in solidarity with those living in desperate times with little hope for the future.

Thank you for your support and prayers that lights a glimmer of hope for the poorest of people where Columbans work
