PROJECT DETAILS

Give now to help the victims of the 7.2 magnitude earthquake that struck southern Haiti on Saturday morning, August 14. Many Haiti residents are still in turmoil from the effects of COVID-19 and a presidential assassination a month ago.
___

On August 14, Haiti was hit by a devastating 7.2 earthquake that knocked the Southern coast to its knees with expansive destruction, loss of life, and injuries. More than 1500 buildings (hotels, churches, hospitals, schools, private businesses, and residential buildings) were completely destroyed, and more than 5,000 were damaged. The situation remains very complicated. All the hospitals in the region are overwhelmed by the events and some of them are either damages or destroyed. Some people are dead because of lack of care after being injured.

Sadly, the situation in Haiti was already very delicate with kidnappings, lots of gang activity limiting access to many different places both in the capital and the rest of the country, and political instability for the past three years which culminated in the assassination of the president over a month ago. The earthquake has only exacerbated an already vulnerable situation.

Every year the Compassion Fund gives help where help is needed most around the world. Your gifts enable our missionaries and national partners to quickly respond to urgent situations in their communities, meeting physical needs, sharing the love of Christ, and establishing a foothold for gospel ministry.

This year, will you help us extend compassion to a world in need?

 

Funds received by MTW as part of a disaster response appeal are used for relief and recovery, construction, travel for response teams, and related needs as well as for longer-term rebuilding and church planting. Exceptionally, when there are unspent funds, they will be used in future disaster and compassion situations.
