2,100 + Killed, 12,000 Injured
On Saturday, August 14, a 7.2 magnitude earthquake struck Haiti taking more than 2,100 lives, decimating homes, schools, offices, and churches across the country and leaving hospitals overwhelmed with thousands more injured.
Meanwhile, Grace lashed Haiti as a tropical depression on Monday, August 16, dumping up to 10 inches of rain before regaining tropical storm status the following day.
Our Mission Partners in Haiti have people on the ground doing assessments and distributing desperately needed aid. We received this update from Ministry in Mission and a request from Mission:Haiti:
We also have been able to send funds to Mission:Haiti, who purchased and distributed much-needed supplies. The need for water, food, hygiene kits, and blue tarps, which can be used to make temporary shelters, is still desperate.
