According to Haiti Analysis, “With six million of Haiti’s 11 million citizens living below the poverty line of $2.41 a day, according to the World Bank, most will face a grueling dilemma of how to feed themselves and their families while avoiding virus infection….As the virus hits countries worldwide, it is unlikely foreign governments will be able to marshal the Herculean support that Haiti needs. Haiti spends just $13 per capita on healthcare, compared to $180 by the Dominican Republic, and $781 in Cuba.” There are only 2 lab testing locations in Haiti for the coronavirus.

MEDICAL CLINIC: We have closed down our pediatric clinic since we do not have proper equipment to keep our staff safe from the virus. We have also closed down the dental clinic for the time being. A few of our medical staff remain on call if any of our creche kids need to be seen.

CRECHE: A few of our medical clinic staff members came to see 4 kids at the creche; 3 of which have common colds, and E who has continued weakness and pain from his sickle cell anemia. Please be praying for these kids, especially for the healing of E. He is having a lot of pain still, mostly in his hip and upper thigh.

Despite the situation, we continue to stand firm in our God who is mighty over every situation and comforts us more than ever during this time.“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” – Isaiah 41:10
