Update: Help for Hurricane Matthew Survivors

"For I have always been mindful of your unfailing love and have lived in reliance on your faithfulness." -- Psalm 26:3

On a recent trip to Haiti, Feed My Starving Children staff and donors loaded a truck with MannaPack meals. The meals were originally shipped to our partner, Help for Haiti. That ministry receives FMSC meals and from there, sends meals to those who need it most -- including Hurricane Matthew survivors in Jeremie. 

In early October of last year, Hurricane Matthew tore through the Caribbean with 145 mph winds and torrential rain. In Haiti, homes were destroyed, bridges were washed out and several people died.

It's common to see people lining up at Help for Haiti's red gate, but with demand so high after the hurricane, this ministry partner ran out of meals. They were forced to put a sign on the gate that read, “We don’t have food for the next two weeks.”

But you heard about this need, and you showed up to pack meals at our sites and MobilePack events across the country. 

 

New Hope Church in Virginia hosted an event just weeks after the hurricane and mobilized enough volunteers to pack half a million meals.

A few days later we receive an update that the meals made it to Jeremie, where lives will be saved because of you. 

The need in Haiti continues. But you also continue. You continue to pack. You continue to pray. You continue to fund these meals. You sure do remind us a lot of God's faithfulness.
