We have been humbled by the outpouring of genuine love and effective prayer by so many. Grateful we are all safe and sound and our village did not endure significant damage. Thankful for a staff of dedicated Haitians that didn’t hesitate to come to work and care for those children in our acute malnutrition inpatient program and cholera hospital. We will spend the day returning our cholera patients to the cholera treatment center, cleaning up, and plan to reopen our outpatient clinic tomorrow morning.
Mixed with joy and relief is an ache for those in parts of Haiti that received the brunt of Hurricane Matthew. Please continue to pray for these people and the country of Haiti. With so many crops being decimated, there is a real concern regarding food supply/ prices in the months to come.
We know many of you would like to donate to help with the needs of those most affected by hurricane Matthew. We would like to list those that we know here in Haiti that are in need of help or are helping those most affected. Please consider helping these organizations below. If you are unable to help financial please pray for them as these next weeks and months to come will be hard for all involved.
