As I see pictures of the devastation in Haiti, I’ve been overcome with sadness over this horrible disaster. Just today, I saw a picture on MSNBC of a woman trapped by earthquake rubble, but smiling as workers found her and worked to set her free. Can you imagine being trapped like that for days? Like many of you, I wondered what I could do to help, in addition to praying. Needless to say, the American Red Cross is an excellent organization to turn to, but I also wanted to make you aware of another organization you may want to consider—World Vision.
World Vision is a Christian humanitarian charity organization dedicated to working with children, families, and their communities worldwide to reach their full potential by tackling the causes of poverty and injustice. They serve close to 100 million people in nearly 100 countries around the world. World Vision serves all people, regardless of religion, race, ethnicity, or gender. Motivated by faith in Jesus Christ, they serve alongside the poor and oppressed as a demonstration of God’s unconditional love for all people.
Please keep Haiti in your prayers and consider donating to World Vision or the American Red Cross.
