Etrenine lives in Haiti, where she and her family depend on their crops to have enough to eat. Even before Hurricane Matthew’s 100-mile-per-hour winds, flooding and mudslides wreaked havoc on the small island nation in October 2016, this family was struggling to get by. Then the storm destroyed most of Etrenine’s crops and they were left with little food — and no way to make a living.
Your gift to Lutheran World Relief today will transform the lives of families like Etrenine’s.
Thanks to generous people like you, emergency supplies were rushed to Haiti after Hurricane Matthew. Plus, your gifts provided Etrenine with seeds and agricultural training so she could quickly replant her garden plots. Soon she was growing enough food to eat — and enough to sell some, so she could afford to send her two school-aged children to school.
Thank you for your compassion for those lifting themselves out of poverty and recovering from crises. Your continued support will make a long-term impact on the lives of hungry and hurting families.
Please give a gift today to help families like Etrenine’s
survive and learn how to prepare for the next catastrophe.
