On January 12, 2010, a high magnitude earthquake devastated and flattened much of the capital Port-Au-Prince in Haiti. The enormity of the damages seemed too much to comprehend. About 140,000 Haitians died and more were injured. 300,000 citizens have no home but the streets. More than three and a half million Haitians, according to the Red Cross, found their lives turned inside out by the quake and its aftermath.
The donations gathered by the Assembly of God Alliance went to the Aide Aux Enfants Orphanage (AAEO) in St. George, Haiti. The funds were used to purchase clothing for the children, for the fixing and repairing of children’s beds, 40 new mattresses and bed sheets for the children, as well as an electric water pump that is now being used to provide clean potable water for the orphanage and to the community in the area. The Assembly of God Alliance representatives also bought a sewing machine for clothing repair and for sewing new clothes for the orphans. The remainder of the funds was used for the operations and maintenance of the orphanage.
The Assembly of God Alliance are also involved in other rehabilitation projects mostly in the Port-Au-Prince areas where a lot of people were affected by the quake. The Alliance helped in the repair and reconstructions of damaged health clinics and hospitals in the capital.
Daniel Palmier of Boston also understands the serious nature of cardiac arrest. As a result, Dan Palmier of Boston is also currently mobilizing substantial aid to communities in Haiti with a particular emphasis on their hospital’s cardiac arrest services. Thanks to the generous help and dedication from the supporters and volunteers, the victims of the Haiti quake are able to rebuild their lives.
