Florida Catholic staff - Florida Catholic
MIAMI | Catholic Legal Services of the Archdiocese of Miami is seeking donations to help its staff respond to the emergency situation affecting Haitian migrants at Del Rio, Texas.
"Initially, we need to charter an airplane to take our Creole-speaking staff to assess the situation and determine how Catholic Legal Services can help," wrote Myriam Mezadieu in an emailed fundraising appeal. Mezadieu is chief operating officer of Catholic Legal Services.
"The long-term plan is to have rotating staff onsite and to provide assistance to those who are released and want to reunite with their family in South Florida," she added. "Your donation will help with travel, lodging, transportation, etc. Every donation counts and will help make an impact."
Donations can be made via GoFundMe at this link: https://bit.ly/3u3DGJA.
