Although Mission of Hope was spared any massive damage from Hurricane Irma, our Caribbean neighbors were not as fortunate. We believe in hope for every man, woman and child, and it is for this reason that we are now mobilizing to help neighboring islands.
After an official request for help from the government of the Turks and Caicos Islands (TCI), Mission of Hope, Haiti (MOH) partnered with Convoy of Hope to meet with island officials and assess damages. Assessments showed roughly 10,000 people in desperate need throughout the island, many of whom are Haitian.
Together, MOH and Convoy of Hope are providing personnel and resources toward relief efforts. Mission of Hope sent our ship, True North, to TCI with food, water, hygiene, and shelter for roughly 10,000 people. The supplies are being distributed through the local churches and the Turks and Caicos Department of Disaster Management and Emergencies (DDME) to those in need.
MOH Haitian team members on the ground in Haiti have been instrumental in our relief efforts in TCI. Even teens from the Mission of Hope orphanage helped assemble hygiene kits for thousands of people. This is an opportunity for Haiti to demonstrate the Gospel to our neighbors and extend hope beyond our boarders.
Over the next 8 weeks, Mission of Hope will continue to partner with the TCI government, community leaders and local churches to assist in recovery by providing nutrition, medical care and construction efforts.
