Your donations make the difference between life and death for many of our Haitian brothers and sisters
The poorest country in the Western Hemisphere experienced its share of struggles in 2020. Already hit hard by the coronavirus, Hurricane Laura in August has wreaked havoc in this small country causing widespread devastation.
Thanks to your donations Lutheran Church Charities continues to send emergency relief funds to Haiti through our Haiti Mission Partners towards critical items.
The most needed is 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. Food that cost $10 US a year ago costs more than $30 now!
Helen Roenfeldt, Mission: Haiti, reports:
In the first 2 distributions we gave out food to 150 individuals/families, mostly elderly.
The pandemic and political and economic chaos in Haiti effects the elderly most profoundly. Many are past their ability to do work of any kind and if they have family, their resources are stretched beyond limits. We are so grateful for this opportunity to help more than 400 suffering elderly with food packages that will provide them each about 20 meals.
The lady in green asked our Field Director Lophane if the whole bag of food was for her, he said "yes" and she cried as she thanked him, telling him that she had not eaten for 2 days.
Thank you so very much for helping us help these precious souls in Haiti. There are many people who would not survive without this kind of assistance.
God bless LCC and all it’s wonderful donors!
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.
YOUR DONATIONS MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Your donations help establish Radio Concordia in Jacmel, Haiti, to share the good news of Jesus Christ!
Radio in Haiti is a significant source for news, entertainment and information for most Haitians. Many Haitians don’t have electricity, yet alone televisions. Battery operated radios are popular with the majority of people and are listened to, day and night.
Radio Concordia is run by members of the church. Rev. Alex Moise, a recently ordained Pastor and President of the congregation, heads up the station.
Besides Alex, Emmanuel Michel, known to many missionaries from the U.S., has an informative Christian talk show on the station.
Other members of the church are Christian DJs at the station spreading the Good News both in words and music. Sunday church services are broadcast weekly. Special church events are also broadcast.
