We (#07160500) have same concerns. Our sponsored child, Sterson, lives near Port-du-Paix. While we're praying for ours, we will also pray that your sponsored boy and his family are okay.

Lorrie and Mitchel and Kathleen, I completely understand your concern over your precious children living in Haiti due to the earthquake that hit yesterday. We haven't yet received official information from our office in Haiti, but we do expect to have information soon. We do post crisis updates on our website that you are welcome to follow to stay up to date on the situation. We don't have information on the earthquake up yet since we haven't heard from the office. If your child was impacted directly, we will also contact you as soon as we have that information. In the meantime, please do continue to pray for these children, their families, and all who were affected by this disaster!

I have not received any updates and I am worried for my child (HA084500094) in Port-du-nord. Please email us about her! We would love to know she is okay.

Hello Crystal, I appreciate your care and concern for Derlensky and his family. They have not been affected by this unfortunate natural disaster. Please know that if we ever receive news that your child or his family have been impacted by a natural disaster or harmed in any way, we will reach out to you personally. No news is good news in these circumstances. I am grateful for your continued prayers for the people in Haiti.
