January 12, 2011
On January 12, 2010, it took only 36 seconds to forever change the lives of millions of our brothers and sisters in Haiti.
As we mark the second anniversary of that terrible day, we want to say thank you for your overwhelming generosity, prayers and compassion, and send you an update of what you've made possible through your charitable support.
Please watch this inspiring video to see just how much your gift has helped Haiti's recovery.
Thanks to your generosity, CRS and our partners have been able to:
- Provide food to more than 1 million people
- Construct more than 10,600 transitional shelters
- Reunite more than 500 unaccompanied children with their families
- Perform almost a thousand emergency surgeries
- Install more than 1,300 latrines, wash stations and water tanks
Even though we've made tremendous progress during the last 2 years, we still have more to do to complete our 5-year recovery plan. Please continue to pray for the people of Haiti as they build for a brighter future.
We simply could not have done this work without you.
Wishing you an abundance of blessings,
Carolyn Y. Woo
