When disaster struck Haiti in January of 2010, and then again in March 2011 in Japan you responded in an amazing way with your financial gifts. With your gifts, Churches Helping Churches has been able to assist hundreds of churches and pastors. We have been able to encourage pastors and help rebuild churches in Japan and Haiti. We believe that we have used your gifts wisely and have made the most of what we had available. In Japan we held Pastoral training events and offered financial grants to local churches in need.
Our efforts in Haiti have been on a much larger scale. We initially supported pastors and church leaders during the recovery phase. Now we are in the rebuilding phase. Rebuilding in Haiti is extremely challenging, as you may have heard from other media outlets, and we have faced a number of obstacles that have greatly impacted the projected time lines for the planned building projects. Our goal to finish 18 new structures has consistently been delayed due to political and bureaucratic roadblocks in moving materials into Port au Prince. We are not alone in this as many Christian and secular NGO’s are facing similar obstacles.
We need your help. Due to the delays encountered at customs, the cost of construction, supervision and project development has increased. We want to finish strong. With your help, we are hoping to raise over $200,000. This amount will enable us to meet our obligations and to finish the projects in a timely manner.
