Fr Peter has written from Colombia with the latest news on the virus there. It is not good and Casa Bannatyne is in the worst affected area of the city—-La Pilarica, which is part of Robledo district, so we ask your prayers.
This is his message—–Nidia is our Housemother and a nurse.
“The virus situation in Colombia is deteriorating. This morning the police came round our block with a loudhailer telling us that Robledo – of which Pilarica is an offshoot – was the worst affected part of the city, and urging everyone to stay indoors. Then this evening Nidia told me that in Bogotá things are now critical, and that all the intensive care units there are now full, and that they are imposing strict lockdowns there by barrio. It looks as though the worst may yet be still to come. OLW pray for us!”
At present we are keeping 1,131 people alive with our food parcels.
