Hurricane Matthew Relief Efforts
BEM is on the ground
Donate today to BEM
and bring critical support
to the people of Haiti.
Thanks to your generous donations, our team was one of the few relief organizations actually on the ground in Haiti after Hurricane Matthew struck southern Haiti. The devastation is enormous: over 2000 people lost their lives and more than a million families are homeless and in critical need of basic supplies. The Haitian government is receiving very little assistance from other countries.
Just one week after the hurricane hit our team was on the ground bringing critical help to the areas most affected. We distributed food to over 400 families in the Les Cayes region. A few weeks later, our medical team arrived in Haiti under the leadership of Nathasha Boulanger, RN. We usually serve four villages but this time due to the enormous needs we sacrificed our beach day for an additional medical clinic in a remote village called Camp Gerard. We saw/treated over 850 people that week. BEM also worked in partnership with an organization from Vietnam to feed as many people as possible after the storm. Rice, beans and oil were distributed to 35,000 families: enough food to last each family 5 to 6 weeks.
BEM would love to start a long term housing project and you can be a part of it: only $300 would provide a roof for an average family, $500 for larger homes and $2000 for a church.
Thank you for standing with us and the dear people of Haiti.
