Remembering Haiti 10 years after the earthquake

Ten years ago today, on January 12, 2010, Haiti suffered one of the most catastrophic earthquakes in history. It claimed the lives of an estimated 220,000 people and left another 300,000 injured. Roughly 2.8 million people were affected, and 1.5 million people were left homeless. (Statistics from World Health Organization)

Mission of Hope was on the ground when the earthquake happened, and thanks to many of you, we were able to provide much-needed relief, including emergency food, water, lodging, and medical care. Over the past decade, our focus has been on helping the people of Haiti rebuild every aspect of their lives while offering the hope found in Jesus. 
NoNo and his wife lost their only daughter in the earthquake, and their son suffered injuries so severe that his leg had to be amputated. He received a prosthetic leg from Mission of Hope and learned to walk again. NoNo now works at the prosthetics lab at our Clinic of Hope. He and his wife have adopted a little girl, and their son is a Chemistry teacher. 

To date, our prosthetics lab has given hope to thousands of people by providing prosthetic limbs and physical therapy, all in an uplifting, Christ-centered environment. “We provide prosthetics and training at no cost to them,” says NoNo. “We want them to know the love God has for them.”

Because of you, amputees in Haiti are able to walk, play, and work. In a country with unpaved roads, few elevators, and a challenging job market, these prosthetics are truly life changing.

The destruction of the 2010 earthquake was truly horrific, but God is a God of redemption and restoration, and we have seen His loving hand time and time again over the past decade in Haiti. As we look back today on an event that changed the lives of our Haitian brothers and sisters, we ask you to join us in prayer as we remember all that has happened and all that God has done.
