If you’ve been following the news lately, you are probably aware that Haiti is facing yet another crisis. Roads are shut down, businesses are closed and people are stranded as demonstrators protest the Haitian government.
We have made the difficult decision to cancel our February volunteer medical team to Haiti as well as a small work team that was also planned for this month. The cancelation is not only for the safety of our American volunteers but the Haitians who work with us in Haiti.
“Great sufferings are every where in Haiti,” wrote our in-country partner. “People who have some money are starved because there is nothing to buy. People who do not have money – we do not know how to name their situation.”
But in the midst of the chaos, the Clinic of Hope has remained open in Terre Blanche. Staff continue to see patients and community members know it’s a place to seek help. “The Clinic of Hope is like a beacon of light in these dark times,” said our in-country partner.
Please pray for peace in Haiti.
If you would like to help Haiti during this time of need, you can donate to Haiti Foundation of Hope. We provide ongoing assistance in Haiti, including food for those in need.
