Giving Children Hope staff are on the ground in Haiti delivering supplies to those in need. They will be overseeing the distribution of the cholera pharmecutical package and the forty-foot shipping container of emergency relief.
The hurricane struck October 4 with winds up to 140 mph, devastating all in its path. Reports say it has claimed 1,000 Haitian lives.
In partnership with H3 Missions, a Riverside-based non profit, Adventist Health International, Rotary International, and Food For The Poor, Giving Children Hope has sent one forty-foot shipping container of emergency supplies, with plans of sending another in the coming weeks. Giving Children Hope delivered over 350,000 pounds of medical supplies, medicine, and food after the earthquake in 2010.
“People often watch these events on T.V. and wish they could do something,” says Executive Director, Sean Lawrence. “Well, we can all play a role. We need financial resources urgently so we can get these life-saving supplies to those in need as soon as possible.”
