Haitian FM parishioners receive 1,200 meal kits


The magnitude 7 quake in Haiti which killed a reported 230,000 people has left up to one million survivors in makeshift camps or sleeping rough. Probably some 5,000 Free Methodist members are in the impacted area, and providing food and shelter to many of them remains a critical objective of our FM relief program. Haitian pastor Jean Marc Zamor, our program Coordinator, is successfully networking with faith-based relief agencies active in Haiti, resulting this past week in tarpaulins for pastoral families living on the street, to protect against the imminent torrential rains and camp quagmires. As well, FM parishioners in over 20 churches joyfully received 1,200 free meal kits after services this past Sunday.
