More than 1.5 million people have been displaced by the 8.8 magnitude earthquake that hit Chile on February 27 (and subsequent aftershocks). This morning Ascension Health President and CEO Anthony Tersigni sent out a system-wide email, inviting all ministry associates to support, again, the Seton Institute, Ascension Health's international ministry, to support relief and recovery efforts in an earthquake ravaged nation. The contributions made on behalf of Haiti have provided desperately needed food, water, shelter and medical supplies. Now the people of Chile need similar assistance.
Should you wish to donate, checks may be made payable to Seton Institute and sent to: Seton Institute, P.O. Box 140182, St. Louis, Mo.,63114, Attn: Chile Earthquake Relief. Seton Institute will use 100% of every donation to directly support relief efforts. Please keep the people of Chile in your hearts and prayers.
