A 7.2-magnitude earthquake hit Haiti on August 14th. The death toll has grown to more than 2,200 and over 12,200 people were injured. Nearly 61,000 homes were destroyed and 76,000 were damaged.
We are so thankful that all of the Children of the Nations staff and children are safe and none of them have been affected. But we are responding to the needs of the victims.
Here are some ways you can help:
A group of Children of the Nations board and staff members traveled to the affected area last week so they could see what was most needed. They saw that homes, churches, and schools had been destroyed and that the streets were full of rubble. Many were injured and sleeping on the ground outside. Thanks to your generosity, our team was able to give food, water, and hygiene supplies to help people in two of the hardest-hit communities.
But we need your help to continue responding to the most pressing needs of the victims. We are not currently sending teams but are investing in Haitian-led initiatives to help those in greatest need. Thank you for supporting our staff on the ground as they seek to help where it is most needed!
Please give a gift to meet the urgent needs of the children in Haiti today:
