Haiti is at a breaking point

Haiti is at a breaking point

“Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for He who promised is faithful.” — Hebrews 10:23

The current situation in Haiti is the worst we’ve ever seen there. Haiti is at a breaking point. We don’t say this lightly.

An emergency growing more severe by the day

In the last two years, Haiti has been thrown from one intersecting crisis to the next. A presidential assassination, a devastating earthquake, civil unrest, spiking hunger and poverty, rising violence, skyrocketing inflation and a deadly cholera outbreak — all in rapid, messy, overwhelming succession.

Now, a new level of large-scale unrest and violence has shut down most businesses, schools and other critical institutions. It’s an emergency that’s growing more severe by the day. Our partners are making difficult decisions.

“if our partners can’t get it done, it most likely is not possible.”

FMSC CEO Mark Crea said:

“Our distribution partners are no strangers to dealing with difficult situations. Our partners are resilient — in the face of seemingly insurmountable challenges, they remain steadfast. I often say if our partners can’t get it done, it most likely is not possible. The majority of our partners continue to work in Haiti under extreme pressure with a high level of flexibility. … What used to be routine food distribution has become sophisticated and well-planned operations where security measures must be constantly reevaluated for both our partners and their beneficiaries.

We will not abandon our partners and we will not abandon Haiti — no matter how severe the situation gets.
