How You Can Help
The Daughters of Wisdom is an international Congregation of Catholic women religious serving the material and spiritual needs of people in the US and throughout the world. Our Mission in the United States is to “bring the message of Jesus, Incarnate Wisdom, to people experiencing injustice, violence, poverty and oppression, especially women and children.”
You can help us achieve our Mission by making a donation to any of the following:
Haiti Earthquake Relief Program
The Haiti Earthquake Relief Program was established immediately after the January 12, 2010 earthquake that destroyed the city of Port-au-Prince and surrounding villages in Haiti. Our Sisters in Haiti lost practically all of their institutions in the area including schools, a health clinic, convents, and the facilities for elderly Sisters. Rebuilding will take decades. Donations to this Program help support the rebuilding efforts of our Sisters and their ministries in Haiti.
The Daughters of Wisdom work toward the elimination of trafficking in persons, especially women and children trafficked for the purpose of sexual exploitation. The Sisters support programs such as: Educating the general public, both in the United States and abroad, on the regional, national, and international scope of trafficking, forced labor, and in particular sexual exploitation; Advocating for the provision of mental health services and other psychosocial reintegration support for victims of trafficking; and collaborating with organizations working to eradicate human trafficking, including non-governmental organizations, governmental agencies, and grassroots advocacy groups.
Donations for the Daughters of Wisdom’s Mission Projects enable our Sisters to assist those requiring aid by working in ministries that are unfunded but sorely needed. Our Sisters work in soup kitchens, tutor students who need a helping hand, work in hospice centers, visit the sick in hospitals and nursing homes, and help care for those with special needs such as autistic children. The Mission Fund also helps provide funds for emergency relief when a disaster strikes such as an earthquake, a tsunami, a tornado, or a flood, and immediate help is requested.

Please contact Sister Lucy Clynes, DW for more information or if you have any questions about any of the programs described above.
