|This is the situation in Port-au-Prince. I am not trying to be dramatic—this is what is actually happening there.
Hundreds of inhabitants, including some of the ICDM’s closest partners, are enduring this dilemma. They are forced to abandon homes, relatives, businesses, etc.
The gangs encircle the capital city from north to south and from east to west. Most educational establishments are closed. It is almost impossible to move goods from the capital to the other states and vice versa. Fuel is scarce. Inflation is up to fifty percent.
For over thirty years, the International Christian Development Mission, Inc. has engaged itself in educating, equipping, and empowering people to serve within their communities. Our methodology works. Amid the despair, ICDM continues to keep Hope alive.
Our children are in school. The medical clinic is open. 410 students are attending Bible schools in 10 separate locations. 70 students are attending classes in the schools of Evangelism in Port-de-Paix, Haiti, and Elias Piña, D.R., New churches are being planted. Animal husbandry, the feeding program, and agricultural programs are ongoing.
