(Haiti)–We begin today in Haiti where a strike by public transportation workers has paralyzed the Caribbean nation’s two major cities. Rioting and violent protests broke out Tuesday in Cap Haitian over sharply rising fuel prices and the government elimination of a subsidy program. For Haiti With Love’s Eva Dehart says their clinic workers helped treat some of the wounded. “God had For Haiti With Love exactly where we were supposed to be when we were needed. As they brought the injured people into the clinic, the entire family came with them, and then they just didn’t leave; they felt safe.” Meeting needs furthers their mission of reaching the Haitians with the love and compassion of Christ. DeHart asks people to pray. “They just have nothing at this point. Everything that we’re seeing is just a combination of frustration and desperation. They are at a total survival level.”
