Last month WJTL asked you to partner with us in raising money to build 12 houses for families in Haiti who were displaced by the earthquake earlier this year. We are happy to tell you we have reached our goal…and blew past it! We’re now at 17 houses!!
We heard stories about how you raised money via bake sales, rallied your Bible Study group…some of you even raised money during recess!
On behalf of Food for the Poor and those in Haiti who’ve been impacted and blessed by your generosity, WJTL wants to say a sincere “THANK YOU!”
The world has come together to reach out to the earthquake victims in Haiti — and yet so much more needs to be done to ease the enormous suffering. Food For The Poor’s feeding center in Port-au-Prince is operational again, feeding thousands of people each day, but we need more funds to ship lifesaving food and clean water to benefit the countless families struggling to survive. Tent cities, some with more than 50,000 people, are scattered throughout the city and lack the basic necessities such as food and water.
The process of recovery in Haiti will be long and difficult. That’s why your continued support is so crucial to the relief efforts.
Please continue to keep Haiti in your prayers. Thank you for your compassion and generosity.
