Disaster Alert: November 26, 2018

Haiti recently commemorated the 215th anniversary of its victory over the French army on November 18. The country experienced a massive protest involving armed groups in the cities of Port-au-Prince, Cap-Haitian, Les Cayes, and Miragoane. The turmoil deepened and resulted in another protest and strikes early last week. In addition, protestors are demanding the resignation of Haiti’s current president due to allegations of corruption. A temporary calm returned over this past weekend, but more protests are anticipated this week. Compassion Haiti is keeping a close watch on protest activities, keeping the safety of beneficiaries first and foremost in their operations. Please pray for Haiti's stability and safety for staff, beneficiaries, and their families.
