On Saturday August 14, 2021, a magnitude 7.2 earthquake struck Haiti. It has caused widespread structural damage, with aftershocks expected to occur. The death toll has risen to 1,941 and at least 9,900 are injured. Many people are scared to enter their homes due to tremors which are shaking their homes; these families forced to seek shelter outside. In addition Tropical Storm Grace has caused further issues.
EI and our partner OEBB (Bethesda Mission) have been working together to help communities and families in Haiti for 30 years. Our partners in Haiti are asking for our assistance. We would like to help earthquake survivors, and partner with local churches in response to the earthquake and Tropical Storm Grace.
With your help, we would like to distribute supplies such as food, water, and portable shelters.
Many of you supported the relief work in 2010 and we thank you for support. Can we count on you again to help in this devastation? Our EI partner is asking for assistance to help those effected by both the earthquake and Tropical Storm.
