"Matthew Leaves 'Catastrophic' Devastation in Haiti" - Weather.com
Relief Team Heading to Haiti Oct. 15. Help us Raise Funds for Shelter, Food & Medical Items!
The Center for Short Term Missions is helping to raise funds for Hurricane Relief Work in Haiti as a result of Hurricane Matthew.
We are partnering with a Orchard Church in McHenry, IL. that is hoping to travel to Haiti October 15th. They are diverting from their original tasks to that of supporting a local ministry called Real Love Ministries we expect will be heavily impacted by the hurricane.
Real Love Ministries provides an orphanage for over 20 children, food, water and clothing for the community along with a medical clinic.
It is our goal to raise $3000 to provide the team with ten large bags filled with food, clothing, medical products and temporary housing supplies for the orphanage and the community of Lafiteau, Haiti. Lafiteau is a port city only 1/2 mile from the ocean.
With the exception of fees taken by Paypal, 100% of your gift will go directly toward the relief work in Lafiteau through Real Love Ministries.
Initial planning is taking place to fly supplies to Lafiteau should donations warrent that opportunity. One plane load can weigh as much as 3000 lbs. Cost for delivery is $4.00 per pound.
Thank you for prayerfully considering lending your support to this crisis. And please pray. We will keep you informed.
