On August 14, 2021, a 7.2 magnitude earthquake hit the country of Haiti, resulting in nearly 2,000 fatalities, approximately 12,000 structures destroyed or damaged, and leaving some 30,000 Haitians displaced or homeless. Grace Church has a close relationship with a number of churches in the region including churches in and around the city of Les Cayes which is just to the southwest of the earthquake epicenter.
Many of the people have immediate need for tents, basic hygienic needs, clothes and shoes as well as long term needs to repair or rebuild churches. Grace Church will work through the local churches in Les Cayes to help meet those needs. Any funds donated above what is needed to assist in this event will be used for future disaster relief.
