Nearly 2,000 people were killed and 9,900 injured in Haiti on August 14, 2021 after a 7.2 magnitude earthquake ripped apart the impoverished nation. This destroyed more than 38,000 homes, damaged 47,000 homes, and collapsed 700 buildings. A tropical storm followed the quake that increased difficulties to assess and respond. The greatest needs identified are temporary shelter, medical assistance, water, food, sanitation, and hygiene.
We want you to know that our Disaster Relief team is coordinating with other responders to determine how the SBCV can provide aid. Our international partners (IMB/Send Relief) share that due to the political instability, crime, and gang activity among the disaster and COVID, sending volunteer teams is not the best option right now. We will keep you informed as we learn more.
Here’s how you can help:
- Please pray now for the families impacted by this devastation.
- You can give a contribution that 100% will go directly to disaster relief.
- Be prepared to go to any disaster by getting trained.
