Haiti Update 1/20

Haiti 🇭🇹
The work in Haiti is more complicated than some other parts of the world. We are not being bombed by Russia or any other country. Instead, we are dealing with a problem from within. Armed and dangerous gangs control sixty percent of the country, with makes for a complex situation for the rest of the country. Many people have fled their homes and all commerce needs to pass through the gang controlled areas. In 1987, Haiti adopted a democratic constitution. For the first time since, we no longer have any elected officials in our government. All this has led to skyrocketing unemployment rates and food is almost completely unaffordable. Haiti has never seen a hunger crisis like the one before us now. World Food Organization says 1.3 million people are highly food insecure and 4.5 million do not have access to enough food to eat. This is half of the population. Haiti currently is one of the countries with the highest levels of food insecurities in the world. Between the gangs taking new territory every day and the continued collapse of the government, the future is bleak for Haitians. Many fear that if something doesn’t change soon, it will rapidly get much worse. Still, Haiti is only 700 miles off the cost of Florida. Many children to go to bed hungry every night, many families continue to work hard and do what they can, but it’s not enough. Haiti has had a long history of humanitarian aid that did more damage than good, but that’s not a reason to not help. Haiti needs our help right now. If you could experience the joy on a child’s face or a fathers happiness or the tears of a mother when we hand them a bag of rice you would understand the importance of what we are doing here with your help. One gentleman told me: “Thank you, thank you, and thank all the people that makes this happen. Please don’t forget us, but most importantly: Pray for us! Pray for Haiti. Only God can help us.”
