A Heart for Haiti – Hurricane Matthew Relief 

Hi, I am Jodi Hoekstra from Chicago, Illinois. A few years ago I had the opportunity to go with other volunteers and Haitian Support Ministries (HSM) to Jacmel, Haiti on a medical relief trip. This experience truly gave me a heart for the Haitian people.

While, all were hurt by the recent hurricane ‘Matthew’, the subsistence farmers on the southern coast of Haiti were by far the hardest hit. Most of these farmers have had their annual crops and livestock either blown or washed away by the 140 mph winds or 15-40 inches of rain that Hurricane Matthew brought. It will take at least a year, without a tropical storm, for their lives to return to “normal”.

Haitian Support Ministries (HSM) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) charity that has been working with Pastor Jean-Claude Pierre and Calvary Church in Jacmel on the southern coast of Haiti for over 20 years. From the onset of HSM, they have been feeding children. Today HSM feeds 300 children daily at their nutrition centers. Through partnerships with other Christian ministries provides school meals to over 3,000 children, as well. For more information about HSM please go to www.haitiansupportministries.org .

Haitian Support Ministries has an immediate need to ship containers of food and supplies to Haiti. To meet this immediate need, a donor has provided a container with over 150,000 meals available to arrive in 6 weeks. Elim Christian Services is preparing 5,000 hygiene HOPE packs and 20,000 HOPE packs (100,000 meals) to donate to Haiti  ( http://www.elimcs.org/hope-packs/ ). Haitian Support Ministries needs to raise $15,600 to ship these much needed items to Haiti.

With your help we will be able to ship the two containers providing 250,000 meals and 5,000 hygiene packs to help those in need. 

Thank you for your help!
