Holt is deeply saddened to learn of the 7.0 magnitude earthquake that devastated Haiti’s capitol of Port-au-Prince yesterday afternoon. We have been in contact with Holt Fontana Children’s Village Director, Mansour Masse, and he informs us that the children and care providers are safe.
Communication with our partners in Haiti has been difficult. We will keep you informed about the children in our care and the 120 families in our family preservation program as we receive more information throughout the day.
Holt is assessing the situation and is prepared to do everything we can to bring relief to the children and families we serve as we learn more information about what the needs are.
We hope that you will join us in praying for the children and care providers at Holt Fontana Village, the families in our family preservation projects, and the hundreds of thousands of people in Haiti who have been affected by this unimaginable tragedy.
