BENEFITING: HANDS OF FRIENDSHIP MISSION INC
We have all been following the news coverage of Hurricane Matthew and it's destruction. We pray that those that it still affects in the US are safe and sheltered. Haiti's southern region was hit and hit hard. In the city of Jeremie anything that wasn't made of concrete is gone, agriculture, livestock, supplies are all gone. Roofs have been lifted off churches, schools and buildings. The roads are washed out and right now there is no access by car and little by boat. Also in the area over 400 orphans have been displaced and while they are safe there is enough food to feed them for three days. They need food and water and they need it fast. Medical supplies are needed as well. If you don't understand the despair in Haiti imagine your worst nightmare and this will help you visualize. Many Haitians live on $2 a day if they are lucky and when the only industry they had to support their families has been washed away again they have nothing. Imagine the fear of standing and holding your child because the stick structure of your home built on dirt is being flooded and washed away, it is the only way to protect them. These are things we have a hard time imagining because they will never happen to us. Please consider helping us raise funds to cover the basic life needs of food and water for their survival as they try to pick themselves up and figure out where life will lead them to next. We will be sending aid directly to the people making sure that all donations are used correctly and make it to the people, not the government. We all suffer with bad times, but will probably never see one day in our lives this bad. Are you willing to be a hero to another human life? Even $5 goes so far in providing rice and water. I challenge you to give up one small thing to help save another human being! Who can help?
