Food, water and shelter is being provided for approximately 520 families staying on church properties in Haiti’s southern peninsula following last week’s devastating Hurricane Matthew. Reports cite the death toll as being somewhere between 500 to more than a 1,000. Episcopal Relief & Development (ERD), the relief agency of the US-based Episcopal Church, is providing direct support to the families in addition to assisting in wider relief efforts.
