We have found out a little more information. We know that Manis’ family in Port-au-Prince is ok. His brother’s house is flattened but they all got out safely. We also have heard from a few other youth whose parents live here on the Plateau. So far we have not heard any casualties but there are many we have not heard one way or another. We appreciate your continued prayers.
For those of you who have asked about giving, Extreme Response has opened a fund to receive aid. You can also send aid directly if you prefer (for more information please write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org). At this point we are not in a hurry to get the funds into Haiti. That will come. Right now people are still digging out family and mourning losses. It is not the time to begin distributing money. As things calm down and people look to rebuild, or as we know what is needed as far as food etc. we will respond accordingly. Thank you for your understanding and for your kind hearts that want to help however possible. We so appreciate all of you!
