Emergency preparations. This is something we hear about often in the U.S. Emergency preparations for snow, ice, hurricanes, floods and wildfires. But few of us have had to prepare for emergencies due to ongoing violence, which results in food shortages.
Fortunately, HFH has partners who put others first and prepare for these emergencies. Haiti is experiencing some of the worst violence in their history and this has led to a terrific food shortage. Rice and beans are scarce and expensive at this time.
Pastor Delamy and Elvire know how important it is to be prepared with food for the daily student school lunch program and are wise in seeking opportunities to purchase food. For many children this is often their only meal of the day.
HFH is delighted to work with Pastor Delamy and Elvire who are good planners and continually look towards the well-being of students and neighbors who are most vulnerable.
And because HFH has donor partners who have been generous, the HFH Board had funds available to quickly transfer when another emergency arose last week. A good supply of rice was purchased to be able to continue the school lunches. We are thankful!
