A group from Main Street United Methodist Church in Abbeville traveled to Haiti earlier this week to perform mission work on the island. They were in Haiti when the earthquake occurred. Our office has been informed that everyone with the mission group is safe, and as we receive more information, we’ll update this post.
The State Department Operations Center has set up the following number for Americans seeking information about family members in Haiti: 1-888-407-4747 (due to heavy volume, some callers may receive a recording).
If you’d like to donate to the rescue and recovery efforts in Haiti, you can text the word “HAITI” from your phone to the number 90999. By sending a text message, a $10 donation goes to the Red Cross and Mercy Corps, who are organizing relief efforts. The donation will show up on your phone bill.
