Life is tough in Haiti, the western hemisphere’s poorest country. For most, daily essentials are inaccessible; half of all Haitians lack clean water, while a third of the population is considered “food insecure.”
Things are getting even more difficult in the north. Tourism giants Royal Caribbean and American Airlines recently cut services in Cap Haitien, the home of For Haiti With Love.
“It has taken a toll in the city, because [the economy is] geared around the jobs that were being provided by those two industries,” says ministry co-founder Eva DeHart.
“Haiti’s economy balances on tourism. The virus is majorly affecting that, but then on top of the virus – which shut Royal Caribbean down – American Airlines decided to drop that part of their run.”
Nonetheless, DeHart says For Haiti With Love’s constant presence is teaching people about God’s faithfulness.
“God is providing, and no matter what else they see in their communities and their lives, we’re still there for them.”
