This year, the Aid to the Church in Need (ACN) campaign will benefit the Christian community of Aleppo. The first project – drop of milk – will provide milk powder to 2,850 children under the age of 10. The second project will aid the St. Louis Hospital in the purchase of medical supplies and electric generators. Finally, the campaign will assist the rebuilding of the infirmary of Our Lady of Perpetual Help, which has been damaged by war.
The bombs and battles have destroyed Aleppo, where much work remains to be done, but these essential projects will improve nutrition, health and education.
