As we track the damage and devastation caused by this past weekend’s earthquake, please know that Compassion has been in Haiti for more than 60 years and has an extensive network of church partners that are poised to immediately bring help and relief to those impacted by this disaster.
Evaluating the damage has been difficult due to destroyed roads and communication systems, but we know: At least 60,000 people have been affected. The death toll is expected to rise as the search for victims trapped under rubble continues. A tropical depression is bringing up to 15 inches of rain, flooding, and mudslides right now, further complicating the situation. Hospitals are overwhelmed and in desperate need of medicine and other resources.
Compassion’s network of over 300 church partners is beginning immediate work to bring food & hygiene kits to families, in addition to medical assistance.
Compassion has produced a: 30-second spot giving your listeners an opportunity to help by donating to the relief fund. Please consider airing this spot as often as possible. And if you’d like to feature the effort on your station, Compassion is available for interviews, other resources, or even a focused campaign on your morning drive to help those affected. Please email Paul if you would like to have the Compassion promo for your station.
