Help for Earthquake Children in Haiti

Our after school lab classes were already contributing to Haitian children before the quake hit. Parents, please see me if you would like to join me in adding to this monthly contribution in light of the recent devastation.

Haitian Children and Families Devastated by Massive Earthquake

The catastrophic earthquake that hit Haiti yesterday has resulted in unfathomable chaos and devastation for hundreds of thousands of children and families.

Compassion sponsors and donors serve more than 65,000 children in Haiti. At least a third of them live in the areas that were hardest hit.

I am asking you to please send a generous gift today to help all the precious Compassion-assisted children and their families affected by this crisis.

We know that you help provide lifesaving assistance to mothers and caretakers and their babies in Haiti through Compassion's Child Survival Program (CSP). We know you must be very concerned. Be assured that we are working to locate the families who receive assistance from your CSP center and determine their specific situation as quickly as possible. We will be sharing a personal update on your Child Survival Program's condition with you as soon as we have that information.

We are working rapidly to assess the situation and determine the full extent of damage:

  • Sadly, we anticipate there will be many deaths.
  • We anticipate thousands of children and families will have lost everything.
  • We anticipate many of our church-based child development centers will have been destroyed.

Without a doubt, the children we serve in Haiti are in shock and face immediate needs for food, water, medical care, shelter and counseling. We have teams prepared to respond, and we are deeply committed to helping each child.

We need your donation today. Please reach out in the name of Jesus to bring relief, comfort, love and restoration to precious children and families whose lives have been devastated by this crisis.

Thank you for caring,
Mark Hanlon
Dr. Wess Stafford
President, USA
