Rebuilding Begins for Hurricane Victims in Haiti

house-made-of-scraps

Many Haitians are living under scraps salvaged from their destroyed homes.

After weeks of preparation and research, CAM’s rebuilding project for Hurricane Matthew victims in Haiti is underway.

Two bases have been set up in heavily affected areas. One base is in the seaside town of Jeremie. The other is in the mountains, where people have received no help since the hurricane hit on October 4. When our staff researched this mountainous area, they found 97 percent of the houses totally destroyed.

Excessive rainfall throughout the past month has created even more hardship for Haitians living under scraps they salvaged from their destroyed homes. The rain has also made it difficult for our staff to travel into these areas to help.

Ways CAM is helping hurricane victims in Haiti:

  • Distributing building supplies for people to repair their homes.
  • Providing water purification tablets to help prevent the spread of deadly cholera.
  • Supplying seeds so Haitians can replant gardens that were destroyed.
  • Rebuilding houses for more than 350 families.

CAM will use this place as a base while reaching out to a mountainous area that was heavily affected by Hurricane Matthew.

Please pray for the many Haitians who are still suffering and for our staff as they research needs and find ways to help. If you wish to help victims of Hurricane Matthew in Haiti, you may donate by using the link below.




Clothing Bundle Project

What would it be like to live in a cold house in the winter because you cannot afford to properly heat your home? How would it be to go without a coat because you don’t have enough money to buy one? For many people in Eastern Europe this is reality— families struggle to even buy food and firewood; buying winter clothing is usually out of the question. That’s why a bag of clothing is such a blessing.clothing-bundle-project

This lady in Romania (pictured) is pleased with the bag of clothing she just received. The clothing from CAM donors will help keep her family warm through the long, cold winter.
