I spent two weeks in Haiti in 1985 doing work in the south coastal town of Les Cayes. While there the government collapsed, and then-dictator, “Baby Doc” Duvalier fled the country. Reading and seeing the images of the collapse, not merely of buildings but government infrastructure and even society, is heart breaking for me. Please continue to pray for relief, strength, order to reign in such horrific and chaotic conditions. But also, please consider financially contributing to an organization on the ground providing relief efforts. You may have your own, and there are many ways and places to give.
Here are a few for you to consider:
- Our denomination’s relief ministry under the umbrella of Mission to North America is the MNA Disaster Response Ministry. You can read about efforts and make a donation to the ministry here.
- Samaritan’s Purse, an international relief organization led by Franklin Graham is reporting on efforts and receiving donations here.
- And Compassion is receiving donations and providing information on child sponsorship here.
L’Union Fait La Force (strength through unity, Haitian motto)
