Haiti/Hurricane Tomas Update
While the world held its breath as Hurricane Tomas hit Haiti this weekend, we’re thankful to report that the tent cities under The Salvation Army’s care in Port-au-Prince seem to have fared well amidst the storm.
According to a brief update from The Salvation Army’s Major Rae Doliber, it appeared to be “business as usual” when she visited the camps in the neighborhood of Delmas 2.
She added, “While the rains washing down the mountainside resulted in pooling water and debris, tents appear to be standing strong with a few tarps flapping in the breeze. People were setting up shop like nothing was going on.”
We’re happy that damage appears to be minimal in a community that has already lost so much. Please continue praying for Haitians and aid workers in the country, especially as others weren’t so lucky and cholera still poses a significant threat to the population.
