We need more help, though! Allan still needs a minimum of $900 more and Jeff needs the full $1500. We know God will provide through our friends and loved ones and possibly even through people we don't know!
So how will your donation help? Haiti's infrastructure is non-existant. There is no government to administer aid as we would see here, (and yet still fails when disaster strikes many times!) and the native people were very poor to begin with. Many children were left parentless after the quake and many parents can't afford to care for their children since the quake. People are still living in tents on the streets and clean drinking water is scarse. Because resources are so limited, there is not even wood to burn to cook a meal or boil water to sanitize it. Allan and Jeff and the rest of the crew will help in a Haitian orphanage, bringing food, clothes and supplies to the children and workers who live/learn there. Find pictures HERE of the last trip CUH organized to the orphanage in Haiti.
Allan and Jeff will bring the love of Jesus Christ to these children by meeting their basic needs and doing repairs to the buildings they are housed and schooled in. They will also take a team on the streets at night to bring hope to those living in the tents. What we need even more than money is prayer. Please soak this trip in your prayers, that God will Bless the travel, the orphans and these men who are going. Please pray for safety and for God's hand to be evident to all. Thank you so much for all you do for us!
PS-we will be having other fundraising events throughout the next couple of months, so I will be updating the ticker above as donations come in from my website and from those events. Any additional funds raised will mean more kids will be given food, clothing, shelter, medical supplies and clean water.
