Action Alert Office of the Moderator For Immediate Release: 13 January 2010 from Moderator of Metropolitan Community Churches
Metropolitan Community Churches Calls for Emergency Action to Support People of Haiti
Yesterday, as the world watched, the island nation of Haiti suffered its worst natural disaster in 200 years. Today we must act!
A 7.0-magnitude earthquake has devastated the region, destroying hospitals, schools, homes and most government buildings, with aftershocks continuing.
Family members inside and outside the country are unable to contact each other. People inside the country who have been able to make outside contact report that voices can be heard from the rubble and the fear is that many children are among the victims trapped in afternoon classes.
“The level of distress is indescribable,” said The Rev. Tania Guzman, in a phone con- versation today. “People are paniced over the inability to find those they love and care for.”
