Samaritan’s Purse continues to help families devastated by the Aug. 14 earthquake.

Samaritan’s Purse continues to serve in Jesus’ Name in the aftermath of a deadly 7.2 magnitude earthquake that rocked Haiti’s southern peninsula on 14 August. Our DC-8 aircraft flew out just one day after the disaster with a Disaster Assistance Response Team (DART) and tonnes of emergency relief. We quickly set up an Emergency Field Hospital in Les Cayes that continues to treat earthquake injuries and provide support in a region now overwhelmed with critical medical needs.

In addition to our mobile hospital, our DART is also providing emergency shelter material and solar lights, and have set up two water filtration systems in communities without clean water access.

On 7 September, Edward Graham travelled to Haiti to encourage Samaritan’s Purse staff as well as those suffering after the earthquake. “I’m very proud of our DART members. They do incredible work, all at a moment’s notice,” Graham said. “The DART responds to show the love of Christ and to share the Gospel by meeting the immediate needs following a disaster.”

Please continue to pray for the people of Haiti and for our teams as they demonstrate God’s love during this desperate situation.

Our water systems are set up in the hard-hit communities of Maniche and Chantal.
