Hurricane Irma has left the fragile country of Haiti in its wake, causing dangerous flooding conditions. Several communities in our operational areas in the north and west have flooded, and many homes and crops are destroyed.
Our team in Haiti is already on the ground and assessing the need. As they are able, they are mobilizing suppliers for relief items and water treatment methods.
Now, more than ever, communities will need ongoing access to safe, clean water. And proper sanitation and hygiene will be critical to halt the spread of deadly diseases caused by unsafe water. Cholera is a major threat as water sources are being contaminated by flooding. More than anything, the Haitian people will need the hope that can only come through Jesus Christ.
Your support and prayers are needed for our sisters and brothers in Haiti. With your help, we will be able to help distribute critically needed items such as chlorine for wells and hygiene kits.
