Your Donations Help Sew Masks and Purchase Hand-Washing Kits
to Help Prevent the Spread of Coronavirus
The coronavirus made its way to Haiti, considered the Western Hemisphere’s poorest country.
In the United States we can wash our hands as soap and clean water are plentiful. But in Haiti, both are scarce.
Lutheran Church Charities (LCC) continues to work through our Haiti Mission Partners, Ministry in Mission and Mission: Haiti to send emergency funds to Haiti during the current pandemic crisis. The funds are used to sew masks, assemble hand-washing kits, and purchase food for the most vulnerable.
Helen Roenfeldt, Mission: Haiti reports:
We have distributed 150 hand washing kits to seven communities or churches so far. Each kit consists of one covered five-gallon container with a spigot, five cakes of dry bleach and 20 bars of soap.
Kit recipients have been instructed in proper hand washing procedures and the need for hand washing and is responsible to set up and maintain the station for three to five families besides their own. They will maintain the container with treated water and hand out soap as necessary.
Each kit costs $25. We do believe that these will save lives.
We are continuing to distribute food as we can. While markets continue to operate, many elderly and families still cannot afford to purchase much food.
Thank you so very much!
God bless you and may you have a Blessed Holy Week and Easter,
Please help to save one life!
Donations to help the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere battle through COVID-19 could potentially save at the very least one life. The cost to make one mask is $1.00. The cost of a hand-washing kit is $25.
Thirty dollars will buy enough rice, oil, maggi, canned fish, spaghetti, and soup to feed one person two meals a day for three weeks.
Please prayerfully consider making a monetary donation to enable Lutheran Church Charities to continue to send emergency funds for life-saving supplies and food to Haiti during the current health crisis.
