Many areas are yet to be dug out and a total death count has not been determined. What has been determined is that many are isolated and in need of food, clothing and medical care. All three of these needs can be met in part through the efforts on going at Mission Harvest and with the aid of some that are urgently trying to raise funds to transport the materials to St. Marc for distribution.
We have backlogged over 120,000 pounds of beans urgently needed in Haiti at our warehouse in Jacksonville. We need volunteers to help process the package and preparations for distribution when shipped and funds to make the shipments.
We also have other items such as medical supplies, clothes, shoes and furniture which can be added blessings to those so urgently in need.
Please pray for these critical needs and then follow what the Lord would have you to do to help. The children of Haiti are depending on all of us to help.
In His Grace
