Buffalo Nun Lends a Hand in Haiti

Sister Mary Johnice Rzadkiewicz (second from left), executive director of the Response to Love Center on Buffalo’s East Side, has been in Port au Prince, Haiti, since Friday, July 16, assisting in ongoing relief efforts in the earthquake-damaged Caribbean nation. She is part of a mission provided by the Felician Sisters which has been working with orphaned children and staffing medical dispensaries.

Johnice is scheduled to remain in Haiti through early August, but would like to return if more volunteers are needed. An estimated 230,000 people died as a result of the Jan. 12 magnitude 7.0 earthquake and some 1 million were left homeless.

She is keeping a journal of her experiences on the Response to Love Center website.
