More news about Plant With Purpose partners in Haiti

We have received another update from the Grande Colline region. This news comes from another organization that, like Plant With Purpose, has been working in Grande Colline for many years. It is good news about our friends, but the pictures are a solemn reminder about the work that lies ahead.
Dear Friends,
We have heard more news from some of our longtime friends and partners in Haiti. We are so relieved that the news of their well being is good! Pere Irnel, former priest in charge of Ascension Parish and very good friend of the late Pere Albert is alive and well. He is still assessing damage in the area he now has charge over. Valdeez, circuit rider for Living Waters of the World, is alive and well. The clinic in Cherident (Grand Colline) is still standing. The doctor is not there at this time because there are no medical supplies. He is alive and well and in Jacmel for now. Haiti Healthcare Partners will be working with them to get supplies as soon as possible. Ancy’s wife, Lorna, is a nurse at the clinic and is now in Cherident to do what she can. Living Water of the World is organizing a trip to assess damages to its water purification sites in Haiti. They are working to secure transportation into Haiti. If anyone has information or access to transportation, please email Chris McRae at Purified drinking water is vital to survival for the people. Ancy and his family are staying in Cherident with family.
