The church is crumbling and we need your help. You may remember past appeals for this church in Burundi. You may have even donated to help us repair it.
Unfortunately the church is beyond the point of saving – it will need to be torn down and completely rebuilt. Will you help us provide these people a place of worship?
Want to help families climb out of poverty? Want to help healing? Want to help children grow and learn? Give a goat!
Let’s keep it simple. If you’ll give $25, we’ll give a neighborhood a goat. Please. It will make a world of difference.

Vincentian International Mission Services (VIMS) helps fuel the growth and development of the Congregation of the Mission especially in countries where resources are few and progress is difficult. We also raise funds for special projects of the Superior General so that the mission of St. Vincent dePaul thrives in the 21st century.
Vincentians are agents of change. In his day, St. Vincent inspired clergy and lay people, royalty and peasants to serve those neglected by society. We continue his ministry today. Join us in making the world holier, kinder, more productive, in short, more the way God wants it.
