Haiti

Lord in your mercy, hear our prayers.

Please pray for the people of Haiti and the relief workers. Funds are desperately needed for recovery work and will be needed for rebuilding also. During times like this, many disreputable people and organizations will try to take your money under the guise of providing help for recovery efforts. Some people are running blatant scams and there are also familiar organizations that collect money but spend a large percentage of it on themselves and very little on the actual cause. These people will prey on your compassion so you must be cautious when making donations.

One organization I can vouch for is The United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR). 100% of your donation will go directly to recovery efforts in Haiti. You can also help by making health kits which provide basic necessities to disaster victims. If you are able to make a donation to help with the recovery efforts, please consider giving to UMCOR. Go to http://www.umcor.org for information and to make donations.

Grace and peace be with you.
