The magnitude 7.2 earthquake struck the Great South of Haiti.
It caused a lot of damage, loss of human life, and the value of the damage has not been assessed as of yet but is grand.
We are going to intervene in the remote towns of the department of Grand ’Anse. CVC wants to intervene to help victims ASAP
We already have a team of 2 doctors and five nurses and a first aid worker, and a trainer who works in the childcare sector who volunteers to help the victims.
We will focus on women and children, because after such disasters there are malicious people who rape women and children in temporary shelters.
There will be a telephone line which will be available 24 hours a day for psychological and other support.
Here is a Partial Assessment of the damage in the department of Grand ’anse.
The municipalities hit by the earthquake are; Jérémie, Pestel, Beaumont, Corail Roseaux.

The Fight Against COVID-19
With the help of some gracious donors, the CVC family was able to provide some of our families with the necessary supplies to help fight against the COVID-19 virus. Haiti is only now reaching the peak of the pandemic. We ask that you continue to be in prayer for the people of Haiti. As many other places are beginning to return to some normalcy, Haiti is an extremely vulnerable place when diseases such as COVID-19 strike. We serve a powerful God and know that His protection blankets and envelops these beautiful people. Stay tuned for other projects and ways that you can get involved!
SUPPORT THE CHILDREN
How to help
First, and foremost, Children’s Vision Center covets your prayers. Without God, none of this would be possible. If you feel God is calling you to help us, there are a few different ways that you can do so. First, you can continue to pray for all of us. This includes the children, staff, teachers, and us as we seek the will of God in an effort to provide these children with a brighter future. Secondly, you can volunteer. The CVC always welcomes anyone who would like to come and work with the children and staff of the school. There are many projects that we have for the future that may be of interest to you or your group. Lastly, you can help us financially. If God has called you to make a donation or be part of our sponsorship program, we would welcome any amount that you feel led to give.
Workshop of Craft
Students are able to choose a craft and are taught how to hand make and produce that craft for selling. We then sell those crafts to the public, especially visitors, and we use the money for the future of the project.
