In its recent announcement the Principality’s diocese described the initiative of “Caritas Monaco” inviting all those who wished to help to donate. Immediately successful the appeal to date, “Caritas Monaco” has collected and sent 69,000 euros (including 12,000 euros sent urgently from Monday 28th February).
This week, a second envelope of around 75,000 euros should be sent again to the “Caritas internationalis” in Rome, intended for this aid.
“Caritas Monaco” and the diocese of Monaco warmly thank all the donors and encourage, in view of the dramatic news, all those who wish to continue their efforts and their donations.
Monsignor Dominique-Marie David thus especially thanks the generous donors and continues to invite all the faithful to a fervent prayer in this time of Lent, in order to implore divine mercy for peace.
