HAITI - HOW to HELP
-by David Servant.

You've probably heard the news of the 7.0 earthquake that struck 
the Caribbean island nation of Haiti late yesterday afternoon. The 
epicenter was not far from Haiti's capital, Port-au-Prince, home to 
about three million people. We have two orphanages in Haiti. The 
one in Port-au-Prince cares for twelve children. We have not been 
able to establish communication with them or with any of our other 
dear friends in Haiti. As soon as we hear something substantial, 
I'll let you know. 

Homes and other buildings in Port-au-Prince are generally poorly 
constructed, made of concrete or concrete blocks, and the early 
news is that there is massive destruction and loss of life. Haiti has 
very little infrastructure or emergency/disaster services. It is the 
poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere. In the best of times, 
life is very difficult for those who live in the hillside shanty towns 
that surround Port-au-Prince. Food insecurity already affects more 
than a quarter of Haiti's population---almost two million people. 
Please join us in prayer for every survivor.

Yesterday afternoon, just a few hours before the earthquake struck, 
a few of our staff members were purchasing air tickets to travel to 
Haiti in a few weeks to visit the two orphanages that we assist 
through our Orphan's Tear division. While they must wait until early 
March, a dear friend, James Jones, who is a former army medic 
and who lives on the same island as Haiti in the Dominican Republic, 
is on his way towards Port-au-Prince. He and his team are carrying 
food, water and medicines. We hope to send funds to James to 
help him and his team provide relief to survivors in the earthquake 
region. Currently, however, our Disaster Relief Fund is empty, as 
we have expended everything we've received into that fund in 2009 
to rebuild the lives of believers affected by Cyclone Nargis in Myanmar.

If you would like to help us with relief efforts in Haiti by contributing 
to Heaven's Family's Disaster Relief Fund, you can give securely 
by credit card through our website (below), or by calling our office

(412) 833-5826. To contribute by check or on the Net, see the 
instructions below. 

100% of what is given will be sent to Haiti, as is always our policy.
I also ask that you forward this email to your compassionate friends 
along with your recommendation of Heaven's Family, as that might 
also be a means to meet urgent needs and answer prayers in Haiti.
