Haiti Earthquake

Devastation in Haiti

On Saturday August 14, Haiti was struck by a massive 7.2-magnitude earthquake. And to make things worse, Tropical Storm Grace dumped heavy rain days later. With so much hurt, we are asking you to stand with the people of Haiti during this devastating time.

The people of Haiti need your help.

As of writing this, there are 2,200 people confirmed dead and 12,000 injured – numbers that are sure to climb. 130,000 families have been left homeless. 

Hospitals are overwhelmed in need of supplies. Families are in need of drinking water, food, and shelter.

Our hearts can’t comprehend the devastation. But in these times we know that God is already there, pouring out His mercy and love.

Your Help is Needed

In partnership with World Renew and local churches, you will deliver urgently needed food and supplies to families affected by the earthquake. Your gift will go help the most vulnerable – targeting two underserved rural communities in Grand’Anse; concentrating efforts to where needed most.

Your gift will provide families with food such as rice, beans, oil and salt. They will also receive non-food items such as tarps for shelter, cooking utensils, water, and sanitation supplies. Simultaneously, our team is planning a more robust response that not only helps families immediately, but rebuild over the long-term.

The solution to poverty is more than physical, it’s spiritual. Instead of handouts, you will be partnering with local churches to permanently lift families out of poverty. Will you join us?
