Rebuilding Haiti: Where We Stand
Posted By Web Team On November 3, 2011 @ 5:25 am In Children in Poverty | 5 Comments
It’s been nearly two years since the devastating earthquake struck Haiti on Jan. 12, 2010.
In the months following the disaster, we received lots of donations to help rebuild and support the families and children affected. In all, we received over $30 million.
After receiving the donations, we began work on 21 strategies to address Haiti’s needs. Some of these needs were more immediate, while others are longer-term strategies.
Needs varied from food, temporary shelters, trauma counseling and medical care, to rebuilding Implementing Church Partner (ICP) buildings and income generation projects.
We still have four strategies in process or ongoing to maintain the support and needs of our ICPs, children, and their families.
As we receive information on the progress of these efforts we will publish more updates.
