Hurricane Matthew: Update from Haiti

On October 4, 2016, Hurricane Matthew delivered a devastating blow to Haiti. According to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian affairs (OCHA), the storm took the lives of 1,000 people and displaced 175,500 residents. HOPE worldwide immediately released $5,000 aimed at providing life-saving aid for members of our partner churches, their families and their communities.

Charles Ham, Hww International Disaster Response Coordinator, and Wade Cook, Hww Vice President of U.S. Programs, were soon on the ground assessing the situation and formulating an effective and sustainable recovery plan. Part of that was an appeal for funds, and we were humbled by the response. Over the Christmas holidays, HOPEww friends and partners rallied support to raise just over $210,000. Our sincere appreciation cannot be adequately expressed in words.
