It has been a rough week watching the devastating effects of Hurricane Matthew here in the US and the Caribbean. Reports from Haiti are over 900 lives lost and 99% homes lost in many villages on the southern coast. We are thankful to share that our staff and students at the Good Shepherd School and our friends in Young Life Haiti are all safe. There was no damage to the school and children have returned to the classroom.
In the tent city, where we support a small school for the poorest families, there was flooding and damage to many homes. We are working with our friend, Wooby, a member of the tent city committee, to bring relief to the residents.
In One Week With Current Gifts We Have:
- Provided 6000 gallons of water
- Rebuilt homes for 2 families / Pictured: Martine family
- Cleaned up the area in hopes to prevent Cholera
