[Updated] Brief Report from Christ Church, Greenville On Haiti Ministry
[Received via email]
My church has had a long-standing ministry in Cange, Haiti.
“Our fundraising will go to our mission partners already working to supply field hospitals in Port au Prince and taking casualties at Cange – Zamni Lasante and Partners in Health. . . . The Haitian organization is Zamni Lasante directed by Fr. Fritz Lafontant and the US-based organization is Partners in Health led by Dr. Paul Farmer. We have been working with these people for 25 years, they are now the largest health care provider in Haiti, they are on the ground and we have been in touch with them since about 9:00 PM on Tuesday or 4 hours after the quake when they were already underway in their response. They are tremendously effective and dedicated people.
Haiti Earthquake Information
With the entire world, our prayers and support are with our brothers and sisters suffering in Haiti as a result of the devastating earthquake. We continue to be in close contact with our two parishioners (Gillaine Warne and Jackie Williams) currently in Cange, 35 miles north of Port au Prince. Thankfully, they are safe and report that Cange is intact and preparing to aid in relief efforts.
To make a financial contribution for emergency aid such as desperately needed water, food, and medical supplies, please click here. Because of the urgency of the need and the current conditions in Haiti, we are unable to accept non-monetary contributions at this time. We will be developing a long-term response plan with our ministry partners to address reconstruction and support efforts.
