Following a devastating earthquake that occurred on August 14 and subsequent flash flooding, the Catholic charity Aid to the Church in Need is providing urgent assistance to Haiti for families worst affected by these natural disasters.

Forty-five families in the district of Jeremie will be the beneficiaries of the first tranche of aid announced by the charity this week

Speaking to ACN, Father Jean-Jacques Saint-Louis, the Provincial Superior of the Montfort Fathers in Haiti, said, “The situation is impossible. The people are too frightened to return to their homes.

“We have to provide food, clothing, water, medicines, and temporary shelter for these people. This is the most important thing at the moment.”

In the Diocese of Jeremie alone, 26 churches have been extensively damaged, including the Cathedral of Saint Louis.
