Katrina hits ministry hard, but not damaged

By November 4, 2005

USA (MNN) — $3 a gallon for gasoline. Bank statement troubles with a hurricane-affected Louisiana based bank, container shortage for shipping relief to Haiti, and a downturn in donations. All of these issues have hit For Haiti with Love right where it hurts, and it doesn’t end there. The ministry founders are also dealing with serious health issues.

According to For Haiti’s Eva DeHart contributions to their ministry are down 70-percent. She says getting baby formula donated has been nearly impossible. And, shipping staple food items in containers has also been difficult. All of these problems are caused by the incredible needs associated with the hurricanes that ravaged the U-S.

For Haiti helps needy Haitians through their feeding program, medical clinic, home rebuilding and more all in the name of Christ. Without the funding many babies will go hungry, burn patients will go untreated, many will remain homeless and many will not hear about God’s love for them.

Pray that God would raise up many people to respond to this incredible financial need and that For Haiti would be able to secure enough donated food and baby supplies to meet their needs.
