Mission for the Poor at the Basilica of St. Hyacinth in Chicago was founded in 2017. All of our members are volunteers. Our goal is to support the poorest and most vulnerable. Currently, we provide direct financial aid to Polish missionaries in Uganda and Tanzania, and material aid (school supplies, hygiene products, clothes and others), especially for orphans, children, youth and seminarians.
We spend 100% of all donations on helping those in need on missions and on the implementation of missionary goals for Polish Franciscans working there and Fr. Resurrectionists in Africa, incl. to develop schools, hospitals, improve the quality of life for local children and more.
