Hurricane Matthew in Haiti
BWBT President Kim Reed was just in Haiti to see how we can help in the aftermath of
Hurricane Matthew. What he witnessed was devastation that goes on for miles and miles.
Thousands of people are in need of food, medicine and shelter. While in Coteaux, Kim
spent time at the cholera hospital. They are in great need of antibiotics, gauze/wound care
supplies, and parasite (worm) medicine. We made connection with Doctors Without Borders
to get supplies into Haiti and into the clinics that need them. All we need now is your help.
If you have access to these medical supplies or medication, please contact us. You can
also make a financial contribution to help with food, shelter, and wound care supplies that
we can purchase. The link below is designated. 100% of the funds donated through this link
will go to Haiti Hurricane Relief.
Your donations have already made a difference! A few days ago on our Facebook page, we asked for help for this lady in the Haiti mountain village of Baied'Orange. Her goats were killed in the hurricane. This is a story being repeated all over Haiti. Crops and livestock were decimated. This will mean that the aftermath of the storm will linger on for a very long time, causing lack of food in a place where food can be difficult to come by during normal times. Due to the generosity of some donors, we were able to purchase three new goats for this lady. And here they are! We can do more with your help. Please help us help the people of Haiti by giving.
