Global Pandemic's impacts on the most vulnerable populations.

As COVID-19 disrupts life around the world, we are learning that it isn't discriminatory. It isn't necessarily targeting segments of populations like we were told; we are learning that we are all vulnerable to this virus. We are only as strong as our medical infrastructure, which is why staying home is important. It keeps resources available for those most in need. But, what happens when there is virtually no medical system in place? 

As of this morning there are 8 known cases of COVID-19 in Haiti, and over 140 people being observed for signs of infection. The Haitian government has closed schools and is enforcing its order to stay home whenever possible. 

Our friends in Haiti are experiencing new fears and challenges as this global pandemic arrives on their shores. Meeting day-to-day needs is a challenge under the best of circumstances for our Haitian friends, and the arrival of COVID-19 will only bring more difficulty.  We ask that you keep them in your prayers. Specifically, we ask prayers for everyone globally who has been personally effected by this virus and those who grieve the loss of loved ones. For the safety and resourcefulness of Haiti's limited medical professionals, prayers for effective containment strategies, and resources to sustain the people of Jeanette, and everyone in Haiti.
