Haiti Relief 8.29.21
I’m sure you have seen the terrible devastation in the rural areas of Haiti following the recent earthquake. Over 2,200 people killed, 12,000 injured and over 136,000 buildings and homes were destroyed. On top of that, the hurricanes have left flooding, additional damage, and have limited access for relief efforts to the most severely affected areas of the country.
The Assemblies of God’s disaster response organization is called Convoy of Hope. They have a presence in Haiti, including a warehouse that was not damaged. Being on the ground, they immediately were able to distribute water, water filters, lanterns, tarps, and other supplies. They have already distributed over 1,000,000 meals and are partnering with other NGO’s (non-government organizations) to bring aid to these already impoverished people.
WFA has partnered with Convoy of Hope for decades and our board voted last week to immediately send $5,000 to help in these relief efforts. As James instructs us, we are to feed the hungry and clothe the naked as a means to show them God’s love and create an opportunity to share with them the eternal salvation provided by Jesus.
