Last week CWS launched an immediate appeal for Haiti following Hurricane Matthew. Christian World Service has sent the appeal to Churches and Individuals on its database.CWS advises that Hurricane Matthew has caused terrible damage in the region where 70% of the people live in poverty. Thousands of people have lost their homes and many are surrounded in mud and debris. Crops and water supplies have been destroyed and there are very real fears about the spread of cholera. The government says 1.4 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance. If you would like to help please go to the CWS website for details.
