Reality Check

The Office of the Presiding Bishop just offered this statement on Haiti:

The people of Haiti have suffered a devastating earthquake, and it is already clear that many have died and many more are injured. Even under “normal” circumstances, Haiti struggles to care for her 9 million people. The nation is the poorest in the western hemisphere, and this latest disaster will set back many recent efforts at development. I urge your prayers for those who have died, been injured, and are searching for loved ones – and I urge your concrete and immediate prayers in the form of contributions to Episcopal Relief & Development, who are already working with the Diocese of Haiti to send aid where it is most needed.

Our Diocese supports the mission in Cange which appears to have been spared except for the fact that people will have to trek down the mountain for water because of no power.

Report from a Dr. at Cange.

Prayers for all.
