Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, and has been devastated by Hurricane Matthew. Close to a 1,000 have lost their lives. Members of our ROCOR Mission in Haiti have suffered, as well. While none have lost their lives, all have endured damage to their meager property and crops. Especially hard hit were our brothers in Les Cayes in the country’s south.
The Parish of St. John of Shanghai & San Francisco has suffered water damage, the floor is covered in several inches of water, and the property is covered in debris.
In Jacmel, home to another ROCOR parish, fields are destroyed, farms animals are dead, several Orthodox families’ homes have been destroyed.
As you have probably heard, very little of the International Aid promised to Haiti after the earthquake of 2010 has actually reached the country.
The Fund for Assistance to ROCOR has been working with the ROCOR Mission in Haiti for many years. Reader Pierre from St. John of Shanghai & San Francisco Parish writes, "Very little aid ever reaches Haiti’s most needy. You are our only hope."
