Here is a snapshot of some of the remarkable ways your generous support is providing immediate relief and beginning to rebuild Haiti.

Clean Water
*The digging of four wells (two more to be drilled this week). These wells provide clean water to an average of 500 people each.
*Last week we distributed 80,000 gallons of water to vulnerable families, serving about 16,000 households with water.
*Within days after the earthquake we were working to serve two hot meals for up to 10,000 people per day (at a cost of less than $2/person).
*One church that serves as a distribution center for meals has been provided 2,200 bags of rice – enough to feed more than 100,000 people.  The church has been trained and has set up a system with the church to distribute the rice, and ensure that the food gets into the hands of those who need it the most.

*We are providing temporary shelter, including distributing over 70,000 tarps.

*Numerous teams of medical volunteers continue to serve in Haiti. Teams are now serving not only in Port-au-Prince, but are traveling to and from the makeshift camps in the surrounding areas. They have ministered to well over 4,000 patients.
*One medical team served in the Carrefour community and saw an average of 200 patients per day.
*Your support has helped to transport over $2.5 million worth of the most needed medicines and medical supplies (nearly all of which was donated).

Covenant World Relief is at work right now in Haiti responding to the immediate needs. We are preparing for long-term community development, but are thankful for your generous support and the ways it is making a difference right now.
