There are two, among many, ways to help out with the situation in Haiti.
Metropolitan Community Churches this week called for emergency action to support the people of Haiti. MCC will soon announce ways to join the relief effort. As reported on in Central Voice, members of the local MCC congregation joined the Katrina Relief effort during that disaster. There are MCC congregations in Haiti.
Rainbow Relief fund, an lgbt-based volunteer organization – http://www.rainbowfund.org – has already donated $35,000 to the relief effort.
“The level of distress is indescribable,” said The Rev. Tania Guzman, said. “People are panicked over the inability to find those they love and care for.” Rev. Tania is MCC Pastor in the Dominican Republic, serving members in Haiti, also.
“What we will need,” Rev. Guzman continued, “is both the spiritual and the physical support to rebuild lives and communities. There are no walls to tear down here; only the work of building up hope again.”
The MCC of the Spirit Board will announce opportunities to join the Haitian disaster relief effort this Sunday.
