On Saturday, August 14, after the devastating earthquake in the morning and a few aftershocks in the afternoon and evening, we received a message from Caritas that there is need for medications and clothing clothing to be sent to Les Cayes and Jeremie. The earthquake had destroyed buildings, homes, and roads. It killed and wounded hundreds of people. We immediately went to the container to get whatever clothing, shoes, sheets and towels we had. We also were able to pack medications, bandages and surgical gloves. The plan was that on Monday Caritas would pick up the boxes and go to Les Cayes with them. We are vigilant now of Tropical S torm Grace heading our way and moving towards Les Cayes. We are praying that God will be merciful in this area where people do not have shelter but are in tents or on the streets right now.
An opportunity to help our Haitian brothers and sisters…
