Please help us deliver aid to the families affected by Hurricane Matthew in Haiti.
Over 1,000 people are dead and many communities were stripped of trees and roofs.
The UN says 1.4 million people remain in need of assistance.
Some of the survivors are barely clinging to life and are in abject need.
"Worse than the earthquake," say eyewitnesses. "It looks like a bomb was dropped."
Conscience International's rapid action relief team was on the scene from the moment the hurricane hit.
Teams are distributing water, food, and relief supplies, as well as providing tarpaulins and building roofs.
You can join Conscience International's response to the devastating hurricane.
Please inquire about making a contribution or sending a relief team from your church.

The refugee crisis in Greece and Turkey is constantly in the news with Conscience International humanitarian aid workers on-site dealing with the needs of thousands who are fleeing war and disasters in their home countries. The conditions for workers, as well as the refugees, are often repressive as well; they work day and night in over-taxing situations without regret, but when these caregivers—volunteers and humanitarian aid staff—sometimes become themselves victims of burn-out and trauma, who is there to support them?
Recognizing the problem first-hand, Conscience International has begun sending counseling teams to impacted areas. Most recently, Dr. Vanessa Snyder, Dean of Clinical Affairs at Richmont Graduate University, Atlanta, and Dr. Lorrie Slater, Assistant Dean of Students, led a Conscience International team of “compassion fatigue” professionals to Lesbos, Greece where Conscience International has been working among refugees arriving by boat and raft from Turkey since September, 2015.
The mission—counseling and training humanitarian aid workers in coping skills, stress management, how to recognize the symptoms of trauma and to deal with it appropriately.
