PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (BNc) — As relief efforts pour into quake-stunned Haiti, many churches are wondering how they can help.
Hope For Haiti’s Children
Terry Tripp of the Center Hill church in Paragould, Ark., informed BNc that there is a foundation, primarily Church-of-Christ sponsored, called Hope For Haiti’s Children (HFHC). HFHC is a program of sponsorship to fund education and health benefits for Haitian children.
“My brothers and I, as well as others from our congregation and across the U.S., have participated in mission work in Haiti through this program,” said Tripp.
HFHC is planning to deliver medical supplies, water and food for the short term, and plans to help in rebuilding homes and schools.
