Since last year’s earthquake in Haiti a groundswell of individuals, businesses, churches and organizations have partnered with Convoy of Hope to help Haitians. Recently, a church and a leading shoe manufacturer donated items for distribution in Haiti.

Our friends and partners continue to amaze us with their generosity. There are still hundreds of thousands of people in Haiti who need help and our partners keep demonstrating that they are as bent on helping Haiti as we are.

I am privileged to be a member of Hope Community Church in Springfield, Mo. who recently donated funds to purchase 40,000 doses of cholera medication. Convoy of Hope added an equivalent batch and was able to ship 80,000 doses to Haiti where Mission of Hope — Convoy of Hope’s in-country partner — is dispensing it. 

Developing partnerships to help people in need is a cornerstone of Convoy of Hope’s work. We could not do what we do without our partners.

A leading manufacturer of shoes donated 15,000 pairs of shoes for children enrolled in Convoy of Hope’s feeding initiatives in Haiti. The shoes are already being distributed.

Since the earthquake last year Convoy of Hope has expanded its feeding initiatives in Haiti to more than 25,000 children each school day.

The Jonas Brothers’ Change For the Children Foundation recently awarded a $70,000 grant to Convoy of Hope for its global children’s feeding initiatives.

“Like us, the Jonas Brothers want to fight hunger by making sure impoverished children have nutritious food to eat each day,” says Hal Donaldson, president of Convoy of Hope. “We are very thankful for their generosity and for linking arms with us.”

Each school day Convoy of Hope feeds nearly 35,000 children a nutritious meal in impoverished countries such as Haiti where the organization has expanded its feeding program to more than 25,000 children since the earthquake last year.

Providing children with nutritious meals is the first step in Convoy of Hope’s comprehensive approach in fighting hunger. The organization also intervenes by providing clean water, healthy living environments, agriculture training and education.

“Our program areas work together to address the root of hunger, which is poverty,” says Donaldson. “Our goal is to lead children down the path to healthy, productive and self-sufficient lives. This grant will help in doing that.”

As part of Convoy of Hope’s ongoing work in Haiti and around the world they work with all kinds of organizations, churches, businesses, government agencies, large corporations and individuals. Through this they have learned that when these partners are exposed to the day-to-day efforts that Convoy is making on the ground, the partnerships strengthen and together they can do more for the people of Haiti and the other countries they work in. This particular group was a group of business executives that represent a few of the countless heroes that have sold out to compassion and partner with Convoy of Hope.

I can’t help but take notice of the happy faces and full bellies of the children in this video.

This is definitely my heart.

Children going hungry and without a safe place to lay their head at night and no medical care…

…we don’t like to think about that. I go home to a fabulous house, air-conditioned, great bed with clean linens (2000 thread count, of course), big screen Plasma TV’s, more clothes than I need, more food than I need in my pantry. I am very comfortable.

We don’t like to think about people being uncomfortable. It makes us uncomfortable.

But the people in Pakistan need us to feel uncomfortable. 

The United Nations reports that 4 million people in Pakistan are homeless. Food, pure drinking water, medicine and blankets are scarce. Roads have been washed out, leaving much of the country inaccessible without helicopters. 

How can we help?

Convoy of Hope has sent funds to its partners on the ground to purchase emergency supplies and is deploying a relief team to the area.

“The reports  we are getting from our partners in Pakistan are staggering,” said Hal Donaldson, president of Convoy of Hope. “It’s a cliche’ – but this is truly a race to save lives. We are committed to doing all we can to meet the immediate needs of people who have lost everything.”

Please donate to help Pakistani flood victims.

Convoy of Hope disaster response personnel are now assessing tornado damage in a number of communities in Oklahoma.

You can help with a secure online donation.

“Truckloads of relief supplies are ready to be delivered based on the assessment,” says Kary Kingsland, vice president of disaster response at Convoy of Hope.

“This has been a busy season for disaster response. The scale of earthquakes, floods and tornadoes since January has definitely taken its toll on resources,” says Kingsland.

Since January, the organization has distributed more than 9 million pounds of food, water and relief supplies to at least 1.8 million people.

Help Convoy of Hope continue to meet needs.

Upon assessing the recent flooding in Tennessee, the organization acted fast to distribute 280,000 pounds of relief to those affected by the disaster.
