Helping Our Neighbors in Haiti

Helping Our Neighbors in Haiti

The United Church of Christ has launched an effort to raise $100,000 to support immediate needs in Haiti following Saturday’s 7.2 magnitude earthquake. In addition, Southern New England Conference congregations and members who have been working in Haiti for several years have offered their suggestions regarding places where financial donations are desperately needed.
“We in the Southern New England Conference are deeply saddened by this recent tragedy, which impacts a country already railing from numerous political, economic, and health challenges” said Rev. James D. Ross II, Minister for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. “We pray for these people of God as Tropical Depression Grace, which came ashore Monday, hampers rescue and response efforts. Wherever you choose to give, we thank God for your generosity.”
Read the story and appeal from the national setting of the United Church of Christ. When donating, be sure to designate your gift for "Haiti Appeal."
First Church of Christ of Longmeadow (Massachusetts), has a long-standing relationship with the National Council of Spiritual Churches of Haiti, known as (CONASPEH). Leaders at First Church Longmeadow recommend donations to Partners in Health, the Boston-based organization which provides urgent and ongoing healthcare in Haiti and other poor countries throughout the world.

Donate to Partners in Health:

Members of the Haiti Task Force, whose member churches are located primarily in Rhode Island and have long-term engagement and relationships in Haiti, have launched a Go Fund Me to raise money to support some of the families impacted by the earthquake and to address other needs identified by partners in Haiti.
“As always, thank you for your care, witness, and commitment to living the love and justice of Jesus,” said Rev. Ross.
