Felix Ortiz, Global Ministries area office executive for Latin America and the Caribbean, recently visited Haiti, the Hispaniola-island nation that suffered a devastating earthquake on Jan. 12. The disaster killed more than 200,000 people, injured more than 200,000 and left more than a million homeless. Haiti President Rene Preval initially described the earthquake’s aftermath as “unimaginable.”
The GM video includes updates about two Global Ministries partners following the earthquake: CONASPEH and House of Hope. Ortiz also gives a historical perspective on the country’s political and social situation prior to the latest situation. View the Video.
