Dear Colleagues and Friends of the Wisconsin Conference:
We are deeply saddened by the news of the tragic events that have recently occurred in Haiti. On Saturday, August 14, Haiti experienced a 7.2 magnitude earthquake that produced widespread destruction in the western region of the country. The current death toll stands at 1,297 and left at least 5,700 people injured in the Caribbean nation, with thousands more displaced from their destroyed or damaged homes.
We invite you to make a donation to UMCOR to aid in the response efforts in Haiti. We ask you to pray for the families of those who have died or are missing. We also pray for the communities experiencing upheaval and uncertainty. UMCOR stands in solidarity and is in communication with partners in Haiti as the full scale of this disaster unfolds.
If you would like to mail a check please make the check out to Wisconsin Conference of The UMC and note Adv# 00483A in the memo line. Please mail your check to:
