LWR Health Kits, Layettes Arrive in Haiti as Relief Efforts Ramp Up
Date:1/26/2010

he area of Delma, one of the most heavily affected areas of Port-au-Prince. So far, CA has reached 200 families with food and will work to reach more.

"Thanks to the generosity of our U.S. donors, LWR is able to support these relief efforts to meet the immediate needs of the people of Haiti," said LWR president John Nunes. "At the same time, the overwhelming show of compassion from U.S. Lutherans allows LWR to start planning a long-term response."

LWR has pledged a long-term commitment in Haiti of at least three to five years, focusing mainly on underserved rural areas outside Port-au-Prince. The earthquake also affected many of these areas, and even those communities that did not sustain damage in the quake will be strained by the anticipated migration of hundreds of thousands of people leaving the Port-au-Prince area. The northern department of Artibonite, where LWR has worked for 14 years, is seeing the largest influx of migrants from Port-au-Prince, putting a significant strain on an area with already limited resources and infrastructure.

Working with local partners and communities in this long term rehabilitation phase, LWR will help communities restore damaged infrastructure, regain agricultural production, strengthen local organizations so that they can respond to future disasters, and help people in underserved rural communities rebuild their livelihoods.

"The road to recovery for the people of Haiti will be a long one and the work is just beginning," adds Nunes. "Lutheran World Relief is committed to seeing this work through and helping the people of Haiti grow stronger and more self-sufficient."
