Haiti Contends with COVID-19
When Director Mark Surbrook spoke with Pastor Samson by phone in June, he heard a cough. Pastor Samson admitted that he most likely had fought the coronavirus, later writing that he had experienced all the symptoms, but there is so little testing available in Haiti that it was not confirmed.
As of June 10, the Haiti Health Ministry had confirmed over 3,600 cases of COVID-19, but with only two labs able to conduct tests, the number is likely much higher.
We are grateful to God for Pastor Samson’s return to health. Please join us in praying for the Haitian people, who must now face this in addition to many other challenges. We were glad to share a gift of $2500 for Pastor Samson to provide food for the families of school children. Our schools are closed, but the families face many needs.
