American Baptist Churches' efforts to assist Southern Haiti began one year ago this month. American Baptist Churches is headquartered in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania, and has contributed approximately $2.8 million to the earthquake-stricken island nation. ABC-USA has contributed to the plight of displaced Haitians through One Great Hour of Sharing.
Lisa Rothenberger, American Baptist Churches world relief officer said, "In addition to generous giving, hundreds of churches sent health kits to Church World Service, volunteers traveled to Haiti to assist with rebuilding efforts or to provide emergency medical treatment, and churches around the world prayed for a better future for the Haitian people."
