The group, along with Holt Director of Donor engagement, Kris Thompson, was in Haiti on a humanitarian trip when the 7.0 magnitude earthquake hit. In the days that followed, they did whatever they could to reach out to the Haitian children and families in the local community who were devastated by this terrible tragedy. This included spending some time at the Holt Fontana Village, where they were able to play with and comfort the children in care there.
The group also put on a concert for the children in the village and the surrounding community, bringing a little brightness into the lives of the families who have lost so much.
The team made it to the airport on Friday and witnessed many pallets of relief products being unloaded from planes.
“As we flew away and looked over the devastated city,” said Shane Bowers. “I could not help but have a huge burden in my heart for those left behind that are now forced to try and reassemble a life that was already so broken to start with. God help the people of Haiti.”
