Haiti is hurting!
Let’s stand in solidarity for Haiti.
Haiti was hit this month by both an earthquake and a tropical storm. This has been devastating. Our partners in Haiti are reporting to us that 3 out of 4 members of their communities have damaged or destroyed homes. The local church network (UBIC churches) is meeting the needs as best it can. They are requesting funds for immediate needs of shelter, food, clothing and medical supplies.
Most Haitians lived through the earthquake 11 years ago. For them, the trauma comes right back; even those with houses still standing are often sleeping outside, even in the rain, for fear of the roof coming down on them.
Our church partners are reaching out with love and tangible support. Please support them with prayer and financial support.
Donate to the Haiti Recovery Fund
Help our partners in Haiti recover from their recent earthquake and tropical storm.
What Your Funding Goes Towards
Our Haitian partners have identified just over 250 families in need in their communities in the Cayes area.
Each family will have different needs and the local leaders will work with our Haitian Christian Horizons team to assess priority. They will be providing kits that include:
- Tarps and wood to create a temporary structure or patch a damaged home.
- 20lb bag of rice
- 5lb supply of beans
- 1 gallon of cooking oil
Each package will cost $66 USD ($83 CAD)
Please give the gift of hope today!

Christian Horizons will determine if we are willing and able to comply with your direction.

If the need for the restricted funds have been met, or cannot be completed, the remaining donation will be used where needed most.
