Haiti: Beyond the Rubble exhibition – 24

Sunday morning, an hour north of Port au Prince, in an area with strong voodoo influences, Bethel church meets in tents on a compound with classrooms and water supplies going up.

Congregation members received money from Tearfund through partner organisation UEBH.

Jordan Shalmis, a single mother of three, received a cash grant. ‘I had just finished constructing my house and the wall came down because of the earthquake. The money meant I could buy some tarps to cover up the holes. This meant a lot to me. We had nothing at all.’

The Tearfund photographic exhibition ‘Haiti: Beyond the Rubble’ runs at Central Hall Westminster from 1-30 June 2011.  For further details, please contact me.
