The co-ordinator of the St Joseph Parish Ministry to Migrants and Refugees (PMMR) has given the assurance that while their list of migrant mothers “continues to grow”, they will try their best to fill their needs.
When Catholic News last spoke to Charmaine Andrews in February (See ‘Baby supplies for migrant mothers’, Feb 22, Features section, catholicnewstt.com) she made an appeal for baby supplies for three pregnant migrant women. She shared that all three mothers from Venezuela and Cuba have given birth at Mt Hope hospital to boys—two are now two months old and the other, a few weeks old.
Andrews expressed thanks for the “tremendous response” from the public since their plight was highlighted. She mentioned the donations included a crib, two strollers, one changing table and four car seats.
