Running for the Brothers


Of Charity, Simone Pele, Port Au Prince, Haiti.

We first met the Brothers on January 15, three days after the Earth quake. Their clinic court yard was full of injured people, many reaching for you as you walked past, their jester asking for help. The brothers worked tirelessly doing everything they could for the injured. At that time they were out of drinking water and basic medical needs, but they kept on. I knew then that if I ever could I wanted to help them.

On May first I will be running the Colorado Marathon. I am using my efforts to raise awareness for their work and financially assist them. They have been my inspiration during the last five months of training. So I am asking you to help the Brothers by pledging financial support to them. 100% of your tax deductable donation will go to help the Brothers. They are in need of medical supplies as well as basic food items.

'Missionaries of Charity' is a Roman Catholic religious order established in 1950 by Mother Teresa of Calcutta. The Missionaries of Charity Brothers (active Branch) were founded in 1963, and a contemplative branch of the Sisters followed in 1976. In 1984, the Missionaries of Charity Fathers[1] was founded by Mother Teresa with Fr. Joseph Langford, to combine the vocation of the Missionaries of Charity with the ministerial priesthood. Lay Catholics and non-Catholics constitute the Co-Workers of Mother Teresa, the Sick and Suffering Co-Workers, and the Lay Missionaries of Charity.

With much gratitude! Lisa Buxman
