Pray for Haiti
Haiti is coping with an escalated humanitarian crisis after President Jovenel Moïse was assassinated in an attack on his home in a suburb of Port-au-Prince on July 7th. Reports state that a group of individuals attacked the president and the first lady, Martine Moïse, at their private residence. Violence and political unrest have continued to tear the country apart for years, and this latest attack will intensify an already critical situation.
Please keep the people of Haiti in your hearts and prayers during this time, as well as the family of President Moïse. We have many friends and partners in Haiti that we’ve worked with for a long time. Their reports on the situation are heartbreaking, as the country faces extreme poverty and hunger, escalating violence, rising COVID-19 cases, and now increased political instability.
Matthew 25: Ministries has worked to improve conditions in Haiti through shipments of humanitarian aid since 1998. After the historic earthquake in 2010, Matthew 25: Ministries increased its level of involvement in Haiti, shipping hundreds of containers of disaster relief and humanitarian aid, leading medical mission trips to assist with healthcare needs, supporting orphanages and creating programs to provide job opportunities, affordable healthcare and other services. Matthew 25: Ministries is committed to continuing to serve the people of Haiti through this time.
