Christmas Greetings & Updates

"So the Word became human and made His home among us. He was full of unfailing love and faithfulness. And we have seen His glory, the glory of the Father's one and only Son." John 1:14

May we all recognize His glory in our lives, now and throughout the year.

The last few months have been filled with many events for Helping Hands for Haiti. Some joyful, some distressing.

The cholera outbreak which started where we work in the Artibonite Valley has claimed close to 3,000 innocent lives. Helping Hands for Haiti as supplied powered chlorine for distribution through the churches we work with in the valley. We will also be holding sanitation clinics for adults and children as we bring teams into the area. The hurricane of November failed to be as strong as predicted, but some homes were lost in the heavy rains. We were happy to have some tents available to aid with shelter.

Helping Hands for Haiti has added 2 new villages to our "Action Plan" program. (see About Us page). You can also read more about the villages in our September news letter. We have also added 3 schools to our school lunch program. We will now be feeding 500+ a hot Kids Against Hunger meal each school day. With said, we are blessed after 3 months battle with Haitian customs to get the full container of food from Kid Against Hunger Sioux Falls. We will be sharing the load with our dear friends at Mission Haiti. Thanks to the GREAT team at KAH Sioux Falls for making this all a reality!!

From all of us at Helping Hands for Haiti our deepest thanks for your prayers and support in 2010.

May you and your family be blessed this Christmas season, as you have blessed so many in Haiti,

God's Peace
