Improving the lives of Haitian children — one meal, one lesson, one step at a time.

Posted Sep 13th, 2017

Although the eye of the storm did not hit Haiti as predicted, the north is still suffering from the heavy rain and high winds. There was a lot of flooding and damage to farmers and their crops. The impact will be felt around the country for a long time.

Haiti is so fragile. The island has been tormented by numerous natural disasters and there hasn’t been time to rebuild. Crops have been destroyed again and again and food is very precious. It is now an even more expensive basic need that is out of reach for so many people.

Please keep Haiti in your hearts through another hurricane season and pray for calm weather.

We’ve just heard the latest news from our Haitian partner, Na Rive. Thankfully, Haiti was spared the eye of the storm and there have been no reports of casualties yet. Port-au-Prince faced strong winds and rain, but nothing like the devastation of Hurricane Mathew. Our community in Ti Plas Kazo remains safe and the Father Jeri School has not sustained any visible damage, which means the staff, students, and teachers can get back to preparing for the start of school next week.

All very good news. And we are very grateful. read more..

As of this morning, things are still quiet in Port au Prince. They are now predicting that the bulk of the storm will hit the north and northwest of Haiti, but they are still preparing all over the country for heavy rains and wind. Schools are closed until Monday so people can stay home and monitor the weather carefully. Stay safe!
