An earthquake of 7.2 magnitude struck Haiti on Saturday, August 14, 2021. The Haitian government has declared a state of emergency as the death toll rises to over 1,800. More than 5,000 people have been reported injured and thousands are presumed missing. Heavy damages and people trapped in rubles were reported in the southern and western regions of the island. This tragic event has taken place nearly a month after the assasination of Haiti’s President Jovenel Moise. The country has yet to recover from the 2010 earthquake, Hurricane Matthew, the imported cholera epidemic and the ongoing political/humanitarian crisis.
We wish to express our deepest sympathies to all who lost loved ones. We salute the courage, resilience and determination of our brothers and sisters . We send them love, prayers and light.
