Our Haiti projects officer, Mike Henry, has been working diligently with other relief agencies over the last two days to bring aid to earthquake victims. Mike visited Leogane today, one of the worst hit areas just outside of Port-au-Prince, and he said almost nothing was left standing.
Though it’s been very difficult the last few days seeing so much suffering everywhere, Mike was happy to report on some of the positive things he and our partners are doing to help the people.
Just today, he was able to deliver several cases of nutrition-packed Vitafood meals to children at Divine Mercy Orphanage, who have been sleeping in the backyard after their building was damaged in the 7.2-scale quake. The food was quite a blessing, as they had nothing left to eat.
President of Missions David Adams has been working with U.N. officials to provide millions of meals to busloads of refugees fleeing Port-au-Prince.
Check back soon for more updates from our staff in the field, and please continue to pray for the people of Haiti. Also, visit our disaster relief page to help.
