OPPORTUNITIES TO GET INVOLVED

                           COVID-19 IN HAITI                                     FFCC Providing Help Near & Far        

FFCC has been serving in Haiti for ten years and has many, many dear friends there. The report is that COVID-19 has infiltrated Haiti and the number of cases is growing. FFCC is doing everything we can do to help.  The country has closed their borders and the government has issued a shut-down of all schools, and factories and asked people to stay home.  Reports from our Haitian friends are that the grocery stores are empty and food is scarce in many areas.  FFCC & Shepherd's House Ministries are distributing the last of the Fight Against Hunger meals that are currently in country. Our Ayiti Academy students will receive some of these meals as well as a neighboring children's home, but it will only last a short time and there are many others who need assistance.  Below is a list of food items and costs for you to consider.  For $374 we can feed (5) families of four for a MONTH!    Read more
