Even though we are not hearing too much on the news these days about the damages of Hurricane Matthew in Haiti, the southern peninsula was hit hard. In the impacted areas, the conditions are even worse than the earthquake of 2010. Thousands of people are in dire straits.
Our partnering association in Haiti, Association des Eglises Evangeliques Baptiste Fondamentale d’ Haiti, with its 90 churches, has several churches that have been washed away or significantly damaged. Pastor Prédestin Hérard, president of the association, shares the following report:
- Northwest: 10 churches destroyed
- Northeast: 2 churches destroyed
- Artibonite: 5 churches damaged
- West: 10 churches damaged
- South: 12 churches destroyed
In addition, more than 100 homes of church members have been damaged or destroyed.
