Thank you to each of you for your phone calls, e-mails, notes on face book and twitter. Your prayers and words of encouragement have been greatly appreciated.
For those that have sent a donation to help with the relief work, money for food, water, medicine, blankets, etc., thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
It will take some time before we will hear from all of our children but so far over half of the 4300 children have been accounted for. The schools themselves that we got a report on in Diquinni, Chabin, Jacmel, Thiotte and the orphanage in Jacmel (Little Angels of Jacmel) have received no damage.. Any construction that had been partially done in other location received some damage.
Information coming out is limited but no reports so far of deaths with any of our children or staff. There are still reports to come from our Port au Prince school and City Solit schools. The Diquinni school is part of Port au Prince west side, right close to Carfour where the eppa center was located. I have not been able to make any phone contact to date.
Communication is still very difficult if not impossible in the country. It appears the schools further in the mountains only felt the ground shake but received no damage.
For those that have children that they sponsor through Lifeline Haiti all reports are that they are all safe... Nothing came in through the night of any changes..
Please, we ask you to keep them in your prayers as it will be getting much more difficult because of all the injured, the dead bodies on the streets, lack of clean drinking water, the number of prisoners that escaped when the prison collapsed. Pray that medical relief, food and water will arrive quickly.
