Ravaged by a 7.2 earthquake on August 14, the people of Haiti need our help to provide relief efforts for victims of the devastation. Haitian film workers and partners are there and ready to respond to the needs on the ground.
The brunt of the devastation is in the southern part of the country, in the Jeremie area. It appears that Jesus Film Project national workers and their families are safe, but please pray for the many others. Meanwhile, the death toll continues to rise.
Chuck, a Jesus Film team leader, reports:
“You’ll remember that this same area is the region that was devastated a few years back from Hurricane Matthew. The bright side of that is, because of our response back then, they [Cru] have partners ready to respond once they have resources to respond with. And that is the problem, they have no cash to purchase the needed resources with.”
The pandemic’s impact is another “bright spot.” Haiti hasn’t suffered “like so many other countries. There have been around 800 deaths total since the beginning,” Chuck says.
