Helping the People of Haiti

David L. Meyer – CEO Hand of Hope

From the moment we first heard of the tremendous devastation caused by the 7.0 earthquake in Haiti on January 12, we immediately starting making plans to assist in any way we could. We’ve been in constant contact with our friends and partners, Bobby and Sherry Burnette, founders of Love A Child in Haiti. Joyce Meyer Ministries has been partnering with Love A Child by providing support for their feeding programs as well as support for a medical clinic in Fond Parisien, the Jesus Healing Center. This clinic has been a haven to the injured, open 24/7 since the earthquake hit and is in great need of medical supplies and surgeons.

We’ve been able to send three orthopedic surgeons, one emergency room physician and 904 pounds of medical supplies, including a desperately needed portable x-ray machine, to the Dominican Republic. The three orthopedic surgeons have already begun performing surgeries at a hospital in the Dominican Republic, near the Haiti border. Medical supplies and the portable x-ray machine have been sent to the Jesus Healing Center and the emergency room physician is treating patients there and referring those who need surgery to the hospital in the Dominican Republic. Please continue to pray for the people of Haiti.
