  • The Sisters of the Holy Names are supporting the work of Development and Peace, an international aid organization in Haiti that works with Caritas and CRS to provide earthquake relief and to work for food sovereignty. This organization funds small projects to help people provide food for themselves and raise livestock or crops to sell. In Lesotho, the Transformation Resource Center is helping people displaced from their homes by the Lesotho Highlands Water Project, asoccerfinals well as those suffering other injustices related to mining and environmental destruction.
  • Many religious communities (including several from UNANIMA) worked hard to raise awareness of trafficking at the World Cup Games in Brazil. The picture shows a very effective brochure that they distributed (the “soccer ball” opens up to show anti-trafficking information), as well as a prayer bracelet that was a popular item.
  • osuUNANIMA was represented at the conference of the Ursuline Educational System, an annual international meeting of teachers, school administrators, and board members from all over the world (the USA, India, and Ireland in this picture). Michele Morek OSU (right) was on a panel describing the work of NGOs at the United Nations.
