CRISIS IN HAITI
In larger cities of Haiti like Port-au-Prince, gang violence continues to spread. A three-day strike ended yesterday and new protests against the government started today. These protests are growing increasingly violent and looting has become a major problem, causing most people to feel unsafe leaving their homes.
In rural villages like Williamson and Luly daily life has also come to a halt. Roadblocks and lack of fuel wreak havoc on food supply chains. There is still a small amount of produce coming down from the mountains, but rice and other staples are scarce. Food that is available is too expensive for most to buy. Many families are becoming desperate.
Cell service has been completely cut off because there is no fuel for cell tower generators. Our Haitian staff have been cut off from bank access due to roadblocks. Many in Williamson and Luly are finding themselves in an impossible position.
The situation in Haiti is deteriorating, but we are trusting in the sovereignty of God.
