SBC Disaster Relief logo Haiti Disaster Relief Response

Officials are concerned that an unprecedented disaster situation following the earthquake in Haiti is developing. Fears are that as many as 200,000 people may be dead and 3 million people homeless. The response from America will last weeks.

Here’s what you can do

  1. Pray
    • for the people of Haiti who have been devastated
    • for Haitian government officials who will be coordinating relief
    • for Haitian Christians as they recover and minister
    • for the injured and displaced
  2. Give
    • The Mississippi Baptist Convention Board is accepting donations to fund both the immediate needs and the long-term disaster relief efforts in Haiti.
    • Checks should be made payable to MBCB, with “Haiti Earthquake Relief” noted on the memo line, and mailed to:
    • Mississippi Baptist Convention Board

      Haiti Disaster Relief

      P.O. Box 530

      Jackson, MS 39205

    • Fully 100% of the donations (every penny) will be used directly to aid Haiti earthquake victims.
  3. Get Organized to go
    • As needs and opportunities are identified
    • Up-to-date passport
    • Inoculations up to date
    • Self-sustained teams living in primitive conditions will be needed
