In 2001 an Ambulance was
donated to the St. Peter the
Apostle Parish in memory of
Colin Flanagan from St. the
Great Albert’s School.
After having the ambulance
reconditioned, all efforts involved
shipping it to El Salvador
Finally, space on a freighter was
donated which meant more items
could be sent.
I one week via word of mouth the
donations arrived in quantity!
Try to imagine that your wife has just awakened at 2am by her
first contractions saying it's time to give birth to your first born
child.  As exciting and stressful as this might be, now try to
imagine that the police cannot take you to the hospital because
they are understaffed and do not have enough money to fill their
own vehicle.  So what do you do?  You spend the next couple of
hours going through town looking for someone who has a
vehicle.  Quite stressful.  Or...as is the case now, you could just
call the parish ambulance driver, give him your name, location,
and a brief explanation of your need.  He arrives in 10 or 15
minutes and is now driving you safely to the nearest clinic or
hospital where you will receive the medical attention that you
need.  The Ambulance Program has radically changed the life of
literally thousands of individuals who have needed speedy
medical attention.  Also, the extra funds raised by St. Alberts
parish has sent a number of young people to college for about
$110 a month.  Talk about making a real difference in people's
lives!   We are all extremely greatful for your generosity.  Please
know that every cent given goes to help you less fortunate
brothers and sisters in El Salvador.  May God bless you
abundantly.  Peace, Fr. Mark R. Riley
