Catholic Relief Services is working to build secure and sustainable structures, create a "teaching hospital" in Port-au-Prince and help local educational groups develop a vision for the future of Catholic education in the country, she said.
It is also teaching farmers how to add value to their crops and continuing the work of community recovery, offering shelter, safety, clean water and other necessities for families returning to their neighborhoods.
Woo also outlined ways in which the bishops can help Catholics Relief Services in its mission.
She encouraged the bishops to link to the organization on their own diocesan websites and to help integrate Catholic social teaching into formation programs.
In addition, she welcomed the bishops to travel overseas with Catholic Relief Services, to see the work that the agency is doing around the world.
Woo also addressed the bishops' concerns about certain federal contract proposals last summer that would have required the distribution of contraceptives. About 70 percent of Catholic Relief Services' funding comes from U.S. government, and about 80 percent comes through a competitive process.
Woo said that the agency worked with the government, and as of February, the problematic language had been "eliminated."
She assured the bishops that the organization is still "monitoring this issue very closely" to ensure that future proposals do not "embed that language."
