    IEAB in Solidarity with Haiti 

    A Provincial Campaign was launched to raise funds to support Haiti after the tragedy we saw Tuesday.

    Destruction and pain: two words that sum up the tragedy that struck Haiti. The earthquake that hit the country has created a sad picture that must be overcome with the solidarity of the world. Children walking in the streets alone and injured, without direction, because they have lost their families. Bodies are everywhere. Mothers searching for news about missing children. Families marked by mourning. Lack of water, electricity, medical help, medicine, and all this in the midst of the urgency to bury the countless dead. The Haitian people are really in need of our help and every one of us must offer concrete help.

    Restoring hope and a decent future in Haiti is a difficult task, but if we each give our small collaboration we will overcome this challenge. Governments, churches and organizations around the world are doing their part to rehabilitate this beloved people. The Episcopal Anglican Church of Brazil, moved by solidarity, also joins this movement and is launching the Solidarity with Haiti campaign.

    All donations will be sent to the Episcopal Relief Development fund to support the work of rebuilding the country.

    We are not a wealthy church, but we have a rich heart and our prayers are being raised to God for those in Haiti through our thoughts and actions.

    Our Deep Concern over the Tragedies in Haiti 

    Prayers and concrete support are needed to those who are now without homes, schools, hospitals, and experiencing the pain of losses of parents. May God help us to stand besides this beloved people who is part of one of the most poor countries in the world. If you want to contribute and support the work of rebuilding Haiti please send your contribution to ERD – Episcopal Relief Development at http://www.er-d.org.
