Catholic Relief Services got a request last week from its partner, Missionaries of Charity in Gonvaives, Haiti, for more money to feed an additional 2,000 people. Currently, the charity feeds 1,200 people a month with lentils, wheat, cooking oil and corn, but it’s facing more demand. The Catholic Relief Services is appealing for private donations to meet the short-term demands of more food, and long-term demands of more local food production, organizers said.
