We're hosting this amazing Help for Haiti Color Fun Run 5k & Walk (1 mile route), plus a virtual run (you can do it anywhere in the world), to help with hurricane Matthew relief in Haiti. This could very well be the most fun you21'll ever have helping someone else!
Hi! My name is Karen Neumeyer. My husband and I are traveling missionaries with Haitian Christian Projects and have been serving in Haiti for 20 years. I’ve seen many tragic circumstances in this 4th world nation over that time- poverty and hardships that are hard to describe. But, the people are beautiful, caring, resourceful and resilient.
On October 4th and 5th, as my friends in the rural villages near Gressier, Haiti hunkered down in whatever meager shelter was available, the storm raged. Hurricane Matthew blew over trees, tore off roofs, toppled over walls and blew away hard earned resources. Torrential rains drenched everything and everyone. Mud slides obliterated entire communities. Crops were destroyed, Markets washed away, livestock killed and countless people were left homeless and grieving lost loved ones. Even in this desperate situation, my friends walked over debris and through the mud to check on each other. They sang songs of praise to God for sparing them, even while knowing the foreseeable future would be bleak.
There is a crisis in Haiti RIGHT NOW! People are without safe water, food and shelter. Disease is spreading due to the conditions. We need to help NOW! South Daytona Christian Church is partnering with Haitian Christian Projects to bring relief to this area. Often times the larger charity organizations don’t get the help or funds to where it’s needed, especially in the more rural areas. We take ALL the donations given right to the people who need it. By sending teams in with the needed supplies and funds we assure that the appropriate help is being given to the appropriate people. Time is of the essence to generate funds in this emergency situation. Please help us as we repair homes, replace livestock, provide food and revive hope for those in greatest need.
And, by the way, every way we help, every word we say, every step we take, every gift we give, every prayer we lift up - is in the name of JESUS! To God be the Glory for what He will do with your prayers and generosity!
