Blessed Sacrament Province Active Member in the Jubilee USA Network

It is a concrete expression of our Corporate Stand to advocate for forgiveness of the debt of the World’s poorest nations. In Mid-November, Treasury Sectary, Jacob Lew, brought Jubilee’s Ebola Relief Proposal to the G20 Meeting. The proposal included using $300 million, from an IMF Trust Fund created to deal with disasters, to relieve $100 in debt for Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leon. In addition, there would be funds for investment in the social infrastructures (Healthcare etc.) of these three countries. Your phone calls and emails in response to Jubilee’s calls to action helped to bring about these actions. Thank you, for responding to my emails for Jubilee. May Our Lady of Guadalupe, Bless you.
