Update on HOM’s Earthquake Relief Work in Southern Haiti
Following last year’s earthquake in the southern part of Haiti, there remains an urgent and on-going need for safe shelter for families whose homes were destroyed. Thanks to generous donations received for earthquake relief, HOM is building six homes in the town of Cavaillon. Cavaillon is 45 miles from the epicenter, and the community there suffered significant damage. Earlier this year, Pastor Leon made several trips to Cavaillon to meet with community leaders and affected families to determine how HOM could provide support.
In addition to the houses, HOM is also constructing 4 wells in the area to give people access to clean, safe drinking water. We are also partnering with FIDA, a Canadian-based organization that has worked in rural Haiti for nearly 40 years, to provide mobile medical clinics so that families in the area will have access to needed health care.
These photos show the great progress being made on the six houses. We are grateful to the generous donors who are made this effort possible and are literally putting a roof over these families’ heads. Bondye ap travay!
