Press Release: Joyce Meyer Ministries Aids In Haiti Earthquake Relief Efforts

by Joyce Meyer Ministries - posted January 14, 2010

  • Emergency food provisions already distributed
  • Ministry's on-site medical clinic remains open 24/7 and is aiding injured
  • Medications and medical supply donations requested

ST. LOUIS, Jan. 14, 2010 – Joyce Meyer Ministries, through its Hand of Hope missions group, has partnered with the Haiti-based Christian humanitarian organization Love A Child to help bring immediate short-term assistance, relief and aid to the earthquake victims in Haiti, which includes food that was funded by partner donations and shipped to Haiti by the ministry. The ministry's medical clinic in Fond Parisien, the Jesus Healing Center, is also open around-the-clock and is aiding in treating the injured.

Another long-time ministry partner, Convoy of Hope , already has people on the ground assessing the damage in Port-au-Prince with a development team also en route to provide additional relief assistance, which may include the distribution of food, water and supplies. Joyce Meyer Ministries also maintains relationships with other humanitarian groups that are also coordinating additional assistance efforts.

"Our first response when we heard the news of this devastating earthquake was to pray for the health, safety and well-being of the precious people of Haiti and surrounding areas who have been affected by this disaster," said David Meyer, CEO, Hand of Hope. "We pray for God's hand of protection to be on them and on those providing disaster relief as well."

Illustrating the dramatic and emotional toil this disaster is having on relief personnel already on the ground, in a poignant email from Bobby Burnette, Love A Child founder, he wrote: "It's a horror! The after shocks, all 30 of them big ones, will make you cry for the Haitian people. They are still coming!" In a separate email today from co-founder Sherry Burnette, she adds "Everything here is upside down . . . no grocery stores, banks are demolished, gas stations . . . bodies everywhere. We have been out collecting wounded all day long!"
