Adan Aftyka needs your help…

We would like to ask you kindly for financial support for Adam Aftyka. Since birth Adam is struggling with eyes cancer. He has been treated in Warsaw and in London. In London dr John Hungerford managed to safe only one Adam’s eye with the innovative treatment (Melphalan).   Unfortunately, doctors in London weren’t able to give Adam any further treatment and propose to remove his only eye that has left. We want to fight cancer again. The consultation and treatment in Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center is of a much hope for us. We are in an urgent need because of the lack of money. The treatment in New York is expensive but it gives a chance to safe Adam’s sight and help other children with eye cancer as well.  If you can, help us to change our great sorrow into a great joy like Jesus who changed water into wine. We believe that Adam was born under a lucky star.  Continue reading Adan Aftyka needs your help…

Empower Haitians to Emerge from Dire Poverty

CLM_family_photoMessage from The International Vincentian Family:       The “bottom billion” are people around the globe who live on less than $1.25 a day. They live in make-shift homes, are not guaranteed a daily meal, cannot send their children to school and lack an income to improve their lot in life. In Haiti, a country of 10 million people, 77 percent live at or below the poverty level.   With your help, a Haitian family can lift itself out of poverty. The International Vincentian Family, which consists of people and organizations that find inspiration in the legacy of St. Vincent de Paul, is hosting a $100,000 matching program through Dec. 27, 2011 for donations to the “Pathway to a Better Life” program.
