Rain Stops. A New Reality Begins. | Hurricane Matthew, Update 4Rich Stigall
The rain stopped. The airport opened, and our GO team did their best to take advantage of the window. Mike, Joe, and Jake landed in country. GO Haiti continued to champion children, deliver food, and the assessments began. Sobering photos. Roofs are gone. Walls are down. Solar panels didn’t stand a chance. Power is out, as are several bridges and roads. The known death toll in Haiti, and the DR (4) is climbing towards 300. Food is scarce.
In the center of it all, stands the Church. When Joe, Mike, and Jake hit Cayes tomorrow, they will go straight to the Church, a refuge for children, a source of help for people in need. We’ll share more updates as we receive them.
To give financially to GO Haiti response efforts, please direct your gifts to the Haiti Relief Fund.
