Tropical Cyclone Eloise made landfall on the 23 of January and preliminary reports indicate that nearly 7000 people have been displaced and more than 5000 houses have been destroyed. Our SVD confreres, Brother Bernardus Fernandez and Fr. Philander Pinalgan are helping the people in our parish in Beira. Let us pray for those who are suffering from this new natural disaster and for our confreres there who accompanies our people.

In the aftermath of Cyclone Eloise, one of many chapel is destroyed in our new parish. A capela de comunidade de São Francisco Xavier Ndunda-2 destruída pelo ciclone Eloise no dia 23 de Janeiro. Daquela zona até agora ainda enche de água chuva.
