Today Tuesday 2nd March SAMS Ireland General Secretary Denis Johnston was able to speak to Bishop Tito Zavala of Chile. Things are difficult and communication is uncertain to Concepcion. The Bishop and a team from the church in Santiago are travelling by truck today hoping to arrive tomorrow with water, food and basics. Numerous church families are living in tents in Concepcion.


Bishop Tito Zavala has asked for donations to be sent through SAMS Ireland for the emergency fund which the church in Chile has set up. You can make a donation online via the SAMS website or contact the SAMS House on 028/048 38310144 for further details.
