10/28 Update on Haiti

Since Monday, there has been a nationwide strike protesting the shortage of fuel and insecure conditions. As a result, our health clinic and most of our schools have been closed as it is very difficult to move around due to the shutdown of public transportation. However, the Repatriote primary school has been able to remain open all week since the majority of students and faculty live within walking distance.

Madame Jacky reports that “economic and social activities resumed timidly today Thursday” and our other schools resumed classes, with about 55% of students in attendance. We are grateful that our Haitian colleagues are all safe and ask for your continued prayers for the people of Haiti during this very challenging period.
