Least of These Ministries helps to aid the people of Haiti in partnership with Radio Lumiere, the national Christian radio network of Haiti.
Radio is vitally important in Haiti for education, communication, and encouragement. Radio Lumiere provides news, education such as health training, how to practice good habits to prevent the transmission of disease, and word-of-mouth information broadcast on air to pass information.
The earthquake of August 14, 2021 has significantly damaged Radio Lumiere's facilities across the nation, thus keeping it from aiding their people.
Our goal is two fold: (1) to procure water, mattresses, tents, food, medicine, and basic goods for the Haitian people, including Radio Lumiere's employees and families who have had their homes and all of their possessions destroyed. By aiding them in this way we will help to provide for them their basic needs while (2) they work to get Radio Lumiere back on the air to communicate with the people.
The funds will be used specifically to spend initially on bottled/bagged water and mattresses for people to sleep on. Funds may also be used for travel expenses, food, and relief supplies for Peniel as he attempts to make his way across Haiti’s Tiburon Peninsula from Port-au-Prince to Les Cayes and Jeremie. We hope to help meet the immediate short term needs until aid gets there so that he (Peniel) and his lead employee, Lhermon Banette can continue to assess damage and hopefully get Radio Lumiere back on the air. The Haitian people are highly dependent on Radio Lumiere.
We need funding as soon as possible; we have access to air flight and Haitians on the ground who can assist. We just need the funding to purchase the supplies and to pay for the shipping. Thank you so much for anything that you can do to assist us in this.
