Since the publication of “The Struggle This Time,” Peter Holley’s June story about the Dieudonne family’s difficulties adjusting to life in America, there has been an outpouring of generosity from readers interested in helping the Dieudonnes and the many families like them who will arrive in the Houston area this year. Catholic Charities, which supports refugee families while they make the transition to their new home, would be grateful for any and all donations. Please call Jo Ann Zuniga at 713-874-6558 for further information.
As many of you will be happy to hear, the recent uptick in donations has already had a direct impact on both Catholic Charities and the Dieudonnes. In addition to offering the family further material assistance, the organization reports that it was recently able to take the Dieudonnes on a long-awaited first trip to Galveston.
