Help for Haiti

On Tuesday night, the strongest earthquake in more than 240 years struck ten miles southwest of Haiti’s capital, Port–au-Prince, destroying buildings and taking many lives. Millions of people are displaced on the streets, lacking shelter, basic necessities and facing the loss of loved ones.  Back2Back’s heart is pierced for the many children and families who are impacted by this tragedy.  Please join with us in praying for the people of Haiti.

Please also consider coming alongside us as we donate funds to relief organizations such as World Vision. World Vision and Back2Back have a common goal of meeting the orphan need. World Vision currently has 370 individuals working on the scene in Haiti. They have extensive experience in providing disaster relief and are committed to offering care for at least 10,000 people. Feel free to visit their website directly to donate funds (www.worldvision.com) or send a check to Back2Back with “Haitian Relief” in the memo and we will direct the funds to World Vision.  For more giving opportunities and a list of additional reputable organizations providing aid to Haiti, please visit the Christian Alliance for Orphans website.

If you are in the Cincinnati area and would like to partner locally, Matthew 25 Ministries is sending shipments of supplies to Haiti and are in need of volunteers to sort donations.  They are also collecting donations to help finance the expense of shipping the supplies to Haiti. Visit the Matthew 25 website for more details (www.m25m.org).

Thank you for partnering with us in our commitment to “provide care for today and hope for tomorrow.”
