CHRISTIAN AID WEEK - 13th- 19thMay
Marcelin lost his home and livelihood when Hurricane Matthew hit Haiti in September 2016. ‘I lost pigs, goats, everything in the house. I have nothing left,’ he says. He now lives in an old concrete shower block, a tiny space he shares with his teenage daughters. There are no windows or doors, and the only furniture is a single bed that the girls sleep on.
Marcelin has shown incredible resilience in the face of such hardships and is working hard to raise his children alone. Will you Stand Together with your global neighbour Marcelin and give a donationto help build a disaster-proof home in Haiti?
Every day he gets up at dawn to work the land but he’s struggling to support his family. The changing weather frequently destroys the food he grows and his family often go hungry. He can no longer afford to send all his children to school and is unable to save any money for a new home.
So, this Christian Aid Week, will you build hope in Haiti?
We know how to make it happen - of the 700 houses we built after the 2010 earthquake, just one needed to be repaired after Hurricane Matthew. But we’re relying on the kindness of people like you to be able to do more, and reach more of our global neighbours in their hour of need.
Once again I will be organising a door to door envelope collection in St. Ippolyts so please keep an eye open for the red envelope and a knock at the door.
