Mission of Hope Haiti Endures Hurricane Matthew, Mobilizes to Help a Nation.


What would happen if the strongest hurricane to strike the Atlantic in over a decade, were to make landfall in our hemisphere’s poorest country ? Unfortunately we are about to find out. This morning Hurricane Matthew slammed into Haiti bringing 145 MPH winds and horrific floods. Obviously this did not happen without warning, and every disaster aid group in the book is looking to help. One Christian ministry among all of them is ideally suited for this disaster. During times of disaster or not Mission of Hope Haiti’s focus is on Haiti. They have served Haiti since 1998. Even in more normal times they serve 90,000 meals per day, and treat 30,000 patients annually. They started gearing up for this crisis on Saturday. Before the storm even made landfall they had ore-positioned over 200,000 meals.

Working from their own in country facilities, and their U.S. office outside Austin, Texas in partnership with their HaitiOne network of over 500 indigenous partner organizations across the nation they  have already come up with a relief plan that includes the following,

35 million meals

350 million units of water

750,000 temporary shelters

Medical care for 280,000 patients

 

After the first 14 days of relief efforts the group plans to transition into a 45 day recovery plan, then into a longer term sustainability plan.

 

Mission of Hope Haiti are veterans of both the 2008 hurricane, and 2010 earthquake in Haiti. They have also been there for the Haitian people everyday in between. Those wishing to help Mission of Hope Haiti in this dire time can text @mohhaiti to  52014, to donate to MOH Disaster Relief. Or you can donate online. At the very least please extend your prayers to Mission of Hope Haiti, the Haitian people, and all those being affected by Hurricane Matthew !
