Summary of the Work in Haiti
June 01, 2014
Haiti is one of the poorest countries in the world. Haiti has the third highest rate of hunger in the world. It has less clean water than Ethiopia. It’s malnutrition rate is higher than Angola’s and life expectancy in Haiti is lower than in the Sudan. The devastating earthquake of 2010 brought increased poverty, homelessness, death and disease to an already distressed area. When the Bible talks about doing something for “the least of these” it certainly must include the people of Haiti.
Pastor Jentezen Franklin has been burdened for the people of Haiti. With the help of Kingdom Connection partners, much has been done to provide assistance to Haitians battling extreme poverty.
Here’s a summary of what has been done so far:
- A field hospital has been established.
- 100 homes have been built in Kingdom Connection Village for those left homeless after the earthquake.
- Wells have been dug in Kingdom Connection Village to supply clean water to residents.
- Two trucks have been provided to allow our contacts on the ground in Haiti to deliver food to the hungry in remote locations.
- The 30,000 square feet Kingdom Connection Food Distribution Center has been built to provide a place to store food and emergency supplies.
- The 20-acre Miracle Market has been built to provide jobs for people with no way to provide for their family.
- Kingdom Connection’s ongoing food initiative provides 240,000 meals every month to feed the people in Haiti.
We are thankful that God has allowed us to work together to help meet the physical needs of Haitians living in poverty. When you meet someone’s physical needs, you open their hearts to receive the love of God and accept salvation through Jesus. None of this would be happening without the support of people like you.
While much is being done, much work remains. Please continue to support the ministry in Haiti with your prayers and giving. Be assured that your seed is being sown into good ground.
