home_rebirth-919x408.jpgToday’s post is dedicated to my friends at Mission of Hope Haiti. They have done more than about any organization I know of since the quake. I personally spent some time there two weeks after the January quake and can say without a doubt that anything given to this group will be used to its fullest to change lives in Haiti. Please continue to pray for and support their efforts.

When the Earthquake hit on Jan 12, 2010,
Mission of Hope’s response to the disaster was immediate. Within twenty
minutes we were treating earthquake victims in our clinic, and within
24 hours we were providing food and shelter to thousands in need.

In the first year after the earthquake Mission of Hope was able to:

  • Deliver over 15 million meals
  • Begin feeding 50,000 children a day
  • Treat 27,000 patients at the Clinic of Hope
  • Perform 266 orthopedic and plastic surgeries
  • Provide 75 prosthetic limbs
  • Construct 18 village homes
  • Start construction on building a 500 home community
  • Build a patient ward and medical storage facility
  • Expand the School of Hope to include over 2,500 students
  • Equip over 200 family farmers with agricultural training
  • See over 1,000 people make first-time commitments to follow Jesus

We have set out not only to provide immediate relief, but also to assist in future recovery, ultimately promoting a re-birth of the country that we love so much. Mission of Hope is playing an active role in the rebuilding and recovery of this nation.
