Donations Needed for Recovery Efforts In Haiti Hit by Hurricane Laura Causing Devastation to Families, Our Churches and Orphanages
Your Donations Help Feed Haitians in Need
Already being hit hard by the pandemic, Hurricane Laura has wreaked havoc in Haiti causing widespread devastation, bringing torrential downpours, flooding, power outages, and other damage that killed 21 people.
The combination of wind, driving rain and runoff from the mountains rushing to the sea, damaged and destroyed homes, ruining some possessions and washing many belongs away.
Lutheran Church Charities continues to send emergency relief funds to Haiti through our Haiti Mission Partners towards critical items. Funds are needed to provide emergency food, bottled water, tarps and supplies to patch roofs and walls.
We are helping to provide food for elderly and at risk families, mostly single parent families. Due to a lack of good government financial policies and the international lock downs of COVID-19, inflation has become outrageous. The exchange rate has gone up in just one year from 40 Haitian gordes to $1.00 U.S. to 125 Haitian gordes to a $1.00 U.S. In practical terms that means that food that cost $10 US a year ago costs more than $30 now!
Please let people know that what they do in the name of Jesus Christ in Haiti is truly the difference between life and death for many of our brothers and sisters. We thank you so very much but the real reward comes not from us but from the King of Glory himself.
God bless you all!
Because of Christ,
Please pray for LCC Haiti Mission partners and the Haitians as they recover from yet another disaster. If you are so moved, please donate generously to help LCC support the recovery efforts in Haiti.
