In addition to destroying thousands of physical structures and destabilizing the infrastructure of three provinces, the quake directly impacted more than 800,000 people—340,000 of whom were children—and left 650,000 Haitians in need of emergency relief. More than 2,200 people were killed and close to 13,000 were injured.</span></span></span></span></span></span></span></p> <img alt="destruction in Haiti" data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="0031dcda-8309-44e1-86bb-11ab9e4c54da" src="/sites/default/files/inline-images/blog__haiti1-4.png" class="align-center" /> <p style="text-align:start"><span style="font-size:medium"><span style="font-family:Calibri, sans-serif"><span style="color:#000000"><span style="font-style:normal"><span style="font-weight:400"><span style="white-space:normal"><span style="text-decoration:none">With your help, Nazarene Compassionate Ministries was able to partner with leaders of Nazarene districts and churches in Haiti to organize a well-orchestrated distribution of relief. Nazarene leaders and volunteers from two districts in Haiti—the Grand’Anse and South districts—drew from recent experience organizing a 2016 hurricane response to mobilize compassionate relief following the 2021 earthquake. Each district created a plan for assembling food kits and established distribution sites for getting essential items to impacted people.</span></span></span></span></span></span></span></p> <img alt="women in Haiti receiving bags of food" data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="3003def3-738b-4630-ab2a-d6215e233320" src="/sites/default/files/inline-images/blog__haiti1-6.png" class="align-center" /> <p style="text-align:start"><span style="font-size:medium"><span style="font-family:Calibri, sans-serif"><span style="color:#000000"><span style="font-style:normal"><span style="font-weight:400"><span style="white-space:normal"><span style="text-decoration:none">Partnership with groups like Mission Aviation Fellowship and Missionary Flights International enabled the delivery of thousands of tarps that provided cover for damaged roofs or quick shelter for those who lost their homes.

The loss of their building left all 77 families who belong to the church with no structure for gathering; many members also suffered significant losses at home. Due to heavy damage to the community, Les Cayes served as one of the sites for assembling and distributing food kits. Fortunately, church leaders have built strong relationships in the community and, as a result, local store owners allowed relief workers to use their stores as distribution sites.</span></span></span></span></span></span></span></p> <p style="text-align:start"><span style="font-size:medium"><span style="font-family:Calibri, sans-serif"><span style="color:#000000"><span style="font-style:normal"><span style="font-weight:400"><span style="white-space:normal"><span style="text-decoration:none">Many people in the community experienced the love of God through the relief program carried out in Les Cayes.
