Monthly Missions Club
In major cities, an ambulance or fire truck is only a few minutes away in an emergency, but when a disaster strikes in one of our isolated mission areas, there are no such services.
Our missionaries need a friend they can count upon in an emergency, someone like you!
Your Regular, Monthly Gift brings Food, Water, Medicines.. and Hope!
FOOD: During times of drought, poor harvest or natural disasters, Oblate missionaries provide emergency food distribution to the poor of our missions. In recent years during the drought in Africa, flooding in Bangladesh and the eruption of Mount Pinatubo in the Philippines, our missionaries were instrumental in saving the lives of thousands of disaster victims.
WATER: Clean drinking water is truly a gift of life. In our missions in the Philippines, Mexico and Africa, many small and isolated communities do not have a constant source of drinking water. Water-borne diseases — the #1 killer of children under age five — can be prevented by drilling deep wells in each community.
MEDICINES: In our missions, Oblate-sponsored clinics are often the only source for emergency medical care for hundreds of miles. By providing inoculations for children, emergency services for injuries and health training to mission villagers, thousands of young children are saved each year.
HOPE: For over 180 years, the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate have served the “poorest of the poor” around the world. Today, more than 4,100 Priests and Brothers of the Oblates of Mary Immaculate continue to bring the Word of Our Lord to missions on all six continents
