Numerous members of the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) have been shut down in southern Haiti along with churches and hospitals following the 7.2 magnitude earthquake that devastated the island country on August 14. The impact has been compounded by flooding from a tropical storm that passed over the country on August 16.
The death toll is more than 2,190 people. At least 12,000 people have been injured, and 1.2 million people have been affected. Some 30,000 families are homeless.
Pastor Solect Jean-Baptiste, ACSI’s National Director in Haiti, is asking for prayer and seeking to raise $30,000 to support member schools impacted by the earthquake with food kits, hygiene kits, and student kits (that will include pens, pencils, sharpeners, erasers, school bags, and New Testaments).
Any financial assistance will go directly to our ACSI representatives in Haiti who will distribute it to the schools.
Join us in prayer for this nation, asking God to bring comfort, peace, and shelter to His children there.
