Deadly earthquake hits Haiti. The Methodist Church in Britain and All We Can have launched a joint appeal

A powerful earthquake that struck Haiti’s Southern Peninsula on Saturday morning has claimed more than a thousand lives, with the death toll still climbing. Many more have been injured.

All We Can and the Methodist Church in Britain have launched a Joint Appeal, after together assessing the likely response needs.

Graeme Hodge, All We Can CEO said, “Our joint response with the Methodist Church in Britain, to deliver life-saving inputs through local partners who are there already, means aid can be deployed quickly. The first five days after a quake are when lives are saved, or lost. We’re speaking with local actors now, and invite anybody wishing to support the response to give now.”

Across the region, large-scale damage has been caused to a majority of churches and hotels. The Methodist church in the Jeremie area is among buildings affected.

As the Methodist Church in Britain and All We Can together launch a joint response, please give, and join us in praying for the initial assessment and early response.

Please give to the Joint Appeal of the Methodist Church in Britain and All We Can:
