“We Need Help”

It’s a simple phrase, even an obvious one.

Standing on a hillside overlooking Haiti’s nearly destroyed capital city, the phrase “We Need Help” is painted on a piece of cardboard in the rubble and feels as accurate now, six months after the earthquake, as it did then. Even though money poured in from all sides (remember the $10 donations to the Red Cross via text message? [Convoy of Hope also took $10 text message donations.] The telethon with every celebrity ever known?), it seems like nothing has happened – as if this tiny half-island nation has somehow become a  HOPE-free zone.

“We Need Help” Simple because of its directness and obvious because, well, it’s spray-painted in the aftermath of the January 12, 2010 earthquake – one of the largest natural disasters to ever affect the Western Hemisphere. “We Need Help” But how? How can we even begin to help? How did it get this bad? And, perhaps most pressingly, where is God in all this?

Have people forgotten about Haiti and the need? Have they forgotten about the many children who need food, shelter, and a school?

Convoy of Hope is still making progress in Haiti – they were there before the quake …and have stepped up efforts since …and will continue.

Relevant Magazine is partnering with Convoy of Hope to build three schools in Haiti. Schools where children will be receiving nutrition and education. Haiti has had an urgent crisis, and the world responded. We now need to look ahead and help Haiti in its long-term recovery. 

…and you can help: Rebuilding schools in Haiti…

It’s impossible to read about Haiti and not want to do something. The question is: What’s truly helpful? Education is the future of Haiti and yet it’s one of the most overlooked areas of aid. RELEVANT and  Convoy of Hope are rebuilding three schools that were destroyed after the earthquake. All donated money will go directly to the rebuilding efforts, which will be done by local workers.
