Urgent Message from the Chair of District
Urgent help needed to rebuild in Haiti after Hurricane Matthew hit the west coast of Haiti on Tuesday 5th October with devastating effect, leaving thousands displaced.
John and Sharon Harbottle (two Methodist mission partners based in Haiti) have managed to get a couple of emails through to us.
"Many areas of Port-au-Prince have suffered from extensive flooding, and the water pouring out of the mountain is likely to continue to increase for a day or two yet as it is still raining. Roofs have been blown off many homes and many people are in refuge centres."
The BBC reported that at least 10,000 people were in shelters along with reports of overcrowded hospitals and shortages of fresh water. The storm knocked down communications and blocked roads, hampering emergency efforts.
Please give what you can to help the Church rebuild communities in Haiti.
I encourage you to send donations to The Methodist Church World Mission Fund
Charity Registration No. 1132208 Marking them for the Haiti Hurricane Appeal
Thank you!
Ruth.
