Emergency Funds Needed in Haiti to Purchase Food After a Weekend of Heavy Rains and Flooding
Your Donations Needed to Purchase Food That Will Be Delivered Immediately
The most urgent need right now is food. Lophane Laurent is in Haiti now and is able to buy food and deliver it to the Pastors in the affected areas to distribute.
Blessings to everyone!
It has been raining so bad in Port-au-Prince and there are a few blocks that are flooding. People in an area called Tabare close to the U.S. embassy and the international airport are asking for help and we can’t do anything for them now.
Please keep them in your prayers as it still raining so bad. I can’t go out just to make a short visit.
Please keep me in your prayers and Haitian staff. The video is from the Leogane area by the LCMS building.
Please prayerfully consider making a monetary donation to enable Lutheran Church Charities to send emergency funds to Haiti to help provide food during the current crisis.
Thank you for being a part of the Mercy and Compassion Ministry of Lutheran Church Charities.
The civil unrest in Haiti continues to disrupt all aspects of life. LCC received the following update from Lophane Laurent in Haiti:
Greetings from our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,
The kids continue going to school even with all the unrest but God always guides them and their parents. Yesterday I spent a good time with the kids sharing the gospel and talking to them about their future. We have 4 of them who will graduate from high school in July. Please keep them in prayers, they are from the first group to get the scholarship program after the earthquake.
Inflation is now 47%. Food is getting more expensive every day and there are no jobs because most of the businesses are closed and their owners leave Haiti. 70% in Haiti are not working. So I can tell you when you support a kid to go to school it’s more than a blessing. Please tell the donors thank you so much from the parents and the kids.
May our God continue to bless each of you. We love you so much.
$2,000 Needed to Help Ministry in Mission Cover Medical Expenses for Jacmel Lutheran Home Resident after Surgery
LCC received a request from Jackie Rychel, Ministry in Mission to help with medical expenses for a resident of Jacmel Lutheran Home.
Help LCC Share the Love of Jesus this Christmas with Presents of Food for Children in Haiti's Tent City
Donations needed to provide children and their families with food
Through your generous donations, Lutheran Church Charities continues to provide scholarships for children in the tent city in Haiti. Each year for Christmas, we ask that you consider a gift of food for the children.
Because of the current political crisis in Haiti, the cost of food has risen dramatically. We are asking for donations to provide each child with a food package of basic supplies that will feed their family during the Christmas break. Without this assistance, many of the children will go hungry.
The cost is $65.00 per child for a gift of basic food staples.
Please consider a generous donation to show the love and compassion of Jesus to these children this Christmas.
Financial Support Needed to Help with Medical Expenses for 10-Year-Old Haitian Boy Living in Center of Refuge Orphanage
LCC received the following request from our Mission Partner Jackie Rychel with Ministry in Mission:
LCC received a request from our mission partner Ministry in Mission working through Rev. Dr. Marky Kessa in Jacmel, Haiti.
In the prison of Jacmel, Haiti, the prisoners are about to die of hunger, and the majority are really sick. We have more than 700 prisoners, men, boys, and girls.
Please help us feed them, and save a life.
"For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in." (Matthew 25:35)
Rev. Dr. Marky Kessa
Please prayerfully consider donating to help provide food for the prisoners in Jacmel.

$10,000 Needed for Cataract Surgery for Senior Haitians at Jacmel Lutheran Home
LCC has received a request from our Mission Partner Jackie Rychel with Ministry in Mission:
Please consider a generous donation to restore sight to these Haitian seniors.
Thanks to your generous donations, our Mission Partner, Ministry in Mission, was able to bring Vacation Bible School opportunity for hundreds of children in Haiti. It was a great success and gave these children a chance to learn about Jesus and His love for them. In addition, meals were provided. For many of these children, the meal they receive at VBS is their one meal for the day.
Due to the current socio-political situation in Haiti, guest speakers spoke with the children via Zoom for Bible Study throughout the week. Tim Hetzner led the session on Friday, July 29.

Help Haitians Battle COVID-19
LCC has been working with our mission partner, Mission:Haiti, since March of this year to help set up multiple COVID clinics. Thanks to your generous donations, hundreds of children, pregnant women, and adults have been served.
Your support helps save lives and provides opportunities for Lophane and his assistants to share the Gospel with many who are sick and in need.
Additional funds are needed to help set up the next round of three clinics in August. The estimated cost is $7,000 and will pay for the medicine, three Haitian doctors, two nurses, assistants, gas, water, food, and all necessary supplies.
Please prayerfully consider a generous donation to support these life-saving clinics as Haiti continues to battle COVID-19. Thank you for making a difference in the lives of our Haitian brothers and sisters!
