Hurricane Matthew

Community of Christ is sending an initial $10,000 from Abolish Poverty, End Suffering for Hurricane Matthew relief in Haiti. You can give now through e-Tithing by selecting the Worldwide Mission Tithes category and giving to “Hurricane Matthew Relief.” (In Australia or Canada, go to Give webpage.) 

Apostle Arthur Smith is not aware of loss of life among church members in Haiti. “Many count themselves lucky to be alive, including a family who left their home just before the roof collapsed,” shared Arthur. Many members have lost their homes and of the 12 congregations in one area of Haiti all but one are destroyed. He said, “Due to bridges being out, we still can’t go visit people. Communication remains difficult.”  

Your continued prayers and generous giving to Abolish Poverty, End Suffering offer hope and tangible aid to make a difference in the lives of those affected by Hurricane Matthew. Thank you.
