As you saw in the last post we have our hands full with caring for our 680 children but we cannot stand by in the face of this horrific disaster. As the people arrive here from the destroyed capitol we will assist them in any way we can. Some need money to go on to family on the coast or inland; some require medical attention; all are hungry and thirsty; almost all need clothing and shoes along with personal hygiene items. A simple thing like letting this young woman use my cell phone to call her mother and tell her she was all right and in Cayes was momentous for her and her mother. All this requires money. We are very grateful for the generous response we have received from you, our supporters. You allow us to be caring to these most unfortunate people.
We are not alone here. There are several NGOs working together to alleviate the suffering of God's people in Haiti. With the almost total annihilation of the seat of government, it is difficult to predict how this will work out and how long it will take to restore things. We are committed to do all we can to make that happen. May God bless all our efforts.
