Are We Forgetting About Haiti?





QUOTE: “At the beginning, everybody was alert [about the situation in Haiti], but now things seem to be shifting in a different direction. The problem is still there, and I feel it is my responsibility to go back.” —Guy Francois, pastor of First Biblical Baptist Church of Palmetto, Fla., after he struggled to gain support for a missions trip to Haiti . Francois, who is from Haiti originally, has had trouble raising funds and getting interest from medical volunteers for the two-week trip. He fears that other events, such as the BP oil spill, are distracting Americans from the continued plight of the Haitians. According to the AP, 1.6 million people in the country are still living under tarps, and less than 2 percent of the rubble has been cleared in Port-au-Prince. Conditions are getting worse now that the rainy season has begun. [bradenton.com, 7/6/10, baltimoresun.com, 6/2/10]
