The impact of Hurricane Matthew is still being assessed as the water recedes. It is absolutely difficult to get into the impact areas because the water has not receded and there is still major water problems.
“This very morning at 3:00 am, the streets in Jacmel were full of residents who were looking for transportation to go to higher elevations for safety from a tsunami. Some will even walk most of the day to reach the mountains. A rumor started that a tsunami is coming and people are panicking!! There is nothing official concerning this. It’s just a rumor spread on social media and WhatsApp, and it’s causing so much panic.
Concerning the western part of the island—cholera has started and many have died already. The hunger and homelessness are so pathetic. Mission for Haiti and Operation Renewed Hope have joined together and are already helping. We will continue, depending upon funds we are given for this tragedy
Please pray and please give. Thank you so much!!”
