Emergency Press Release
Haiti Earthquake Relief 2021
Dear Mission of Tears Supporters, Friends and Family,
As you have seen in the news, in the early morning hours of the 14th of August 2021 a destructive 7.2 magnitude earthquake hit southern Haiti. Over 1200 lives have been lost and we fear the number will continue rising. Thankfully, our staff, partners on the ground and the children in our care are all safe and accounted for. FEJ buildings that house the children, medical clinic, offices and school are all fine so we are in a good position to assist the survivors in this crisis.
Currently, we are working on assessing specific needs, but a state of emergency has already been declared in the country and we are preparing to provide whatever assistance needed.
Please keep the survivors of the earthquake in your thoughts and prayers. If you would like to provide financial support to assist us in helping our Haitian friends at this time, please select the designation "Haiti 2021 Earthquake Relief" on our CanadaHelps Donation Form where you can give by credit card and other means. All gifts are 100% tax receiptable in Canada.
Our sincere thanks,
Mission of Tears
