ReachGlobal in partnership with the Haiti Consortium, and Los Pinos Nuevos have responded in both Haiti and Cuba. ReachGlobal staff in Haiti, and partners in Cuba, quickly brought relief goods to people affected by the storm. Through the end of 2016 in Haiti, a series of short term teams came to start rebuilding, helping dozens of families restore their homes. The response plans for this year focus on oral discipleship delivered through the contexts of trauma care, replanting of fruit trees, helping families develop backyard gardens.
Pray with us that:
- dozens of kids and family discipleship environments will be launched through these efforts
- the families and communities devastated by Hurricane Matthew will be rebuilt on a solid Gospel foundation
- the Lord raises up many teams of outreach workers from the national church

The mission of ReachGlobal Crisis Response
We exist to develop, empower and release the Body of Christ to share His love in times of crisis for multiplying transformational churches among all people.
To advance this mission, ReachGlobal Crisis Response seeks to aid in the development and transformation of:
- Local churches as they will be in the community long after the crisis ends.
- Homeowners in the affected areas, who can then transform their neighborhoods.
- Volunteers as they take what they have learned home to affect their own churches and communities with the gospel message.
