Earthquake & FMSC Relief
January 12, 2010, will be a day never forgotten in our lives and the whole nation of Haiti. The situation in Haiti is always tenuous but now for thousands of people it became life threatening. Northern Haiti saw a rise in population as people moved in with relatives. Since the earthquake in 2010 we have sent 8 containers thanks to the great donations that we received after the earthquake. We are still using that money to send these containers. Our hope for the future is that we can transition many of these people into Self Help Groups.

Paul and his staff have identified and manage to sort through all the people who need help and feed approximately 400 people per week. About 150 of them are refugees from the Port O Prince area. Food filters out to the villages through the pastors as well as they help the neediest in their area.

Another great resource for food has been the FEED MY STARVING CHILDREN ministry who specialize in packaging quart sized containers of rice with nutrients added. This product is donated and we are responsible for shipping costs and distribution to children as the only target for help.

Each container costs about $12,000 to ship which includes duty and distribution.
