Haiti’s saga continues. Everything seems to be in gridlock. I have waited a few days hoping I’d have something positive to report. Some hospitals have closed and others are barely limping along. John spoke with one of our pastors today who said they were burning tires on L Street. L-Street is one of the main arteries in Cap-Haitian. Also, the road that leads from Port-au-Prince into Cap-Haitian is blocked, meaning if they did bring trucks with fuel, they wouldn’t be able to get into the city. One of our pastors went to pick up the transfer we sent for the monthly salaries at the bank, but it was closed down. Hopefully, it will be open tomorrow.
In case you are not on facebook, I am putting up a post John left on his facebook page. It is incredibly sad for this young man to suffer such a loss due to the recklessness of others.
Tragic stories like this one continue to multiply as the Haitian people are held hostage by the power-hungry.
“I have a half-brother who is diabetic. This morning, his case got a lot worse. We rushed to Peace Hospital. There was no specialist who could take the case. The private hospital wanted an arm and a leg to accept him. We went to the ATM, everything was locked. He just died in our arms.
Thank you, Jomo (Mr. President). Thank you, opposition. Thank you, Haiti. #RIPJocelyn”
We are unable to have the feeding program at present for our teachers and students in our schools due to the unrest in the streets. However, it is safer to put a little money in the hands of those with the greatest needs so they can go buy a little food from the marché. Meanwhile, we ask you to pray that we can return to some sense of normal so that we can get the feeding program back up and running in our schools. For now, you can use the info. below and earmark your gift as Haiti/Food Drive.
