Indy People: see us on WFYI 6:30pm Saturday and 7:30pm Monday!

Across Indiana will feature disaster relief in El Salvador, the formation of Friends of Santiago Texacuangos, and Brebeuf's most recent visit to the community of Joya Grande.

this is what brebeuf wrote on their website. i do not like the one woman crusade description because i feel that it negates the hard work of the salvadorans i work with. i am actually a 7 person team and the salvadorans work just as hard as me. anyways. watch it!

WFYI's "Across Indiana" Highlights Beth Tellman '05

On April 5, WFYI's "Across Indiana" featured Beth Tellman's '05 efforts in flood-stricken El Salvador. The program will air again this Saturday, April 10, 6:30 pm on WFYI in Indianapolis. Be sure to tune in to watch her amazing story!

(Beth’s story was produced for "Across Indiana” by another Brebeuf alumnus -- Jim Simmons ’70.)

From "Across Indiana's" website:
"Those of you who have watched our Indiana Poets' travels in El Salvador know Brebeuf's Beth Tellman as our host and translator. But two weeks after the poets left, Hurricane Ida slammed into that Central American country, causing mudslides that killed 200 and left thousands homeless. Beth has now become a near one-woman crusade to get food, water and shelter to the mountain villages--places where Red Cross and other government help has not only not come, but will never come because they are too remote."
