In June 2015, LWR shipped personal care kits, baby care kits and school kits to Haiti through our partner, Lutheran World Federation (LWF).
Lutheran World Federation has been working in Haiti for over 30 years in response to emergencies such as cyclones, the 2010 earthquake, floods and even sometimes political instability with LWR. LWF Haiti works to minimize the effects of emergencies and disasters on the lives of people through local, departmental and regional interventions. This distribution reached an estimated 17,000 recipients in the west of Haiti, including vulnerable families whose houses were destroyed, aged widows and school children.
