I'm sure you are all aware of Hurricane Matthew hitting Haiti. I wanted
to tell you what we did in preparation, and what we will do in
We prepared the two locations (mission house, and offices/clinic) as
well as we could.
The offices were closed for and Tuesday and may be for Wednesday.
I have been in touch with Joel, our operations director, and Fr Frank.
So far everything is ok
Joel will contact me when the hurricane is through. Most of our
employees live in Cayes, which is in a harder hit area. As of
this morning, they and their families were fine.
Fr Frank will contact all the twins in Haiti when the hurricane is
through, and let the US twin know the situation. Obviously with the
rain and the position of many of the twins, flooding and mud slides are
a significant risk.
We will be posting information on the website, so you can check there as
Coincidentally, I am currently on a 337 mile bike ride to raise funds to
rebuild our clinic and mission house. The clinic is the most vulnerable
of the Outreach facilities, as it is the plywood and tin roof structure
that was put in place after the earthquake. The need for a rapid
conclusion to the capital campaign may escalate.
Please continue your prayers for all those in Haiti. We will be in
touch with more information.
