Haitians desperately need our prayers. The death toll of last week’s earthquake has now topped 1,300 people and continues to rise. Thousands of homes have been leveled. And now the country faces severe tropical weather, with victims still trapped in the rubble. These follow a presidential assassination, ongoing food insecurity, and increasing gang violence, all of which makes delivery of emergency services complicated.
Please support the emergency relief efforts of groups such as Samaritan’s Purse. You can give right now at the front page of samaritanspurse.org. Just find their “give” tab.
To be clear, the story of Haiti is more than a story of national bad luck. It’s a story of foreign aid doing more harm than good, and of widespread cultural breakdown because of systemic evils and corruption. The resulting desperation of Haiti’s people is reflected in one woman’s statement: “We only have Jesus now.” May He have mercy on that nation.
