I’m sure there are many places to give today in light of the tragedy in Haiti.
Children’s Hunger Fund is one place I trust and respect.
Here is part of their post on how you can respond:
In a time like this, we are all called to action for the sake of those who are suffering. A team from Children’s Hunger Fund just returned on Sunday from training pastors and ministry volunteers in the Dominican Republic (DR), the country that borders Haiti. These leaders are now trained and trusted partners in the effort to bring food, aid, and hope to the poor in Haiti and the DR. By God’s grace, the sea container full of Food Paks® and other aid we shipped to them arrived in the DR last Wednesday. We have released those boxes of food for use in the relief effort so churches will begin to provide food to the suffering as early as today. In addition, we are preparing to ship a load of bottled water and an emergency food out of our San Antonio, TX distribution center. As resources come in, we will continue to direct more and more loads. It is our hope to send a minimum of 10 sea containers full of aid.
Our ministry partner in the DR, Esperanza International, is moving forward to serve those affected. Kempiz Hernandez, our Mercy Network Director over Latin America, said, “I am thankful that we have a trustworthy partner, who has wonderful relationships with many pastors and churches in Haiti to help in this disaster.”
We ask for your help today so that we will be able to provide the needed aid in a timely way. A simple gift of $24 will provide Food Paks and other aid for a family in need. You can donate HERE in our secure donation form. Please note: “Haiti Earthquake” in the comments section.
We are also calling on corporations to help with the emergency response by providing product donations and monetary contributions. Please contact us directly at 800.708.7589 and ask for our Resource Department.
Another way to help right now is to pray. Please pray with us for the children and families suffering in Haiti at this time. Pray that in the chaos, they would find comfort and that God would provide for their needs even now.
Please check back often to hear how the relief effort moves forward.
