From the ELCA:
A devastating 7.2 magnitude earthquake struck southwest Haiti on Aug. 14. Over 1,400 people were killed, and that number is expected to increase as search-and-rescue efforts continue. Blocked roads are delaying the delivery of vital supplies to hospitals, which are overwhelmed with more than 6,900 injured people. At least 26,000 homes were damaged or destroyed, but the full extent of damage is still unknown. Haiti is also suffering through a political crisis and was hit by Tropical Storm Grace, which caused severe flooding in communities already damaged by the earthquake.
Living Water joins Trinity with the larger world community in an attempt to share our love and resources in a tangible way, addressing urgent needs in parts of the world hardest hit by adversity in our partnership with NGOs around the world.
Please join us in offering help to our siblings in Christ in crisis.
