Disaster Appeal For South Carolina

MSA has received the following from the Grand Secretary of South Carolina, MW Gerald L. Carver:

"The Eastern Part of South Carolina is now having devastating flooding from the flow of Hurricane Florence water from North Carolina through the rivers in the Eastern Part of the State. Three Lodges have already been flooded, and several Brethren and many other South Carolinians have had to leave their homes which are now flooded. Unfortunately, the worst is yet to come with the rivers cresting later this week. Also, the pollution from the North Carolina pig farms and chicken houses is and will be causing major pollution in the flooded South Carolina rivers which flow through cities and towns along the inter-coastal waterway where hundreds if not thousands have been ordered to evacuate in anticipation of the flooding later this week. Our Grand Master, Most Worshipful Michael D. Smith, Sr requests that you make an appeal to our Sister Grand Jurisdictions on behalf of the South Carolina Brethren."

Accordingly, the Masonic Service Association is announcing a Disaster Relief Appeal for the Grand Lodge of South Carolina.

Even ten days after the hurricane, the rivers have not crested yet, and Brothers and their homes and Lodges have seen tremendous damage. In some areas, water is expected to rise over ten feet, and it is feared more will die as a consequence. Please contribute whatever you can for these distressed worthy Brothers.

Disaster Appeal For North Carolina

Most Worshipful Speed Hallman, Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of North Carolina has requested the Masonic Service Association of North America to issue a Disaster Relief Appeal. Hurricane Florence has produced massive flooding across the state. The Grand Lodge is aiding and assisting their Brothers, their families, and their communities in providing aid and assistance.

Further information will be made as available. Please keep up to date at MSA's website as well as MSA's Facebook Page and Facebook Group.

Disaster Appeal For Guatemala

The Fuego Volcano in Guatemala erupted with terrible force on June 3 killing many and burying hundreds more. Volcanic ash has fallen over half of Guatemala where agriculture is crucial. Further eruptions and seismic events are expected.

The Grand Master of Guatemala, Brother Estuardo Ordoñez Kocher, has asked the Masonic Service Association of North America to issue a Disaster Relief Appeal to help his afflicted brethren and their families. He reports that six of over 50 burned children have already been sent to the Shriners Hospital in Galveston, Texas, but, unfortunately, his local resources have been expended.

Please forward any donations you feel appropriate to help in this stricken jurisdiction to MSA.
