In addition to the above expenditure programs, the following programs were initiated:
1. Continue to support the graduating religious from Assumption College for Sisters so that we can extend their reach when they need funding in their homelands worldwide. The College’s motto is “Teach a Sister, Touch the World”. MQAN is trying to make the WORLD aspect effective for tens of thousands of orphans,
disabled & very poor so the graduate sisters make a difference.
2. Support the Religious Teachers Filippini worldwide which started December 2018 with a sizable grant for young students in the very poor area of Goala, Ethiopia.
We will maintain contact with Sr. Mary Beth Lloyd, International Mission Director residing at Villa Walsh campus, Morristown.
