New disaster in Haiti
Flood on the south coast. Hurricane Matthew, who destroyed so much in October, was followed by the worst drought in 15 years.
For six months, Haiti's people have prayed for rain - but what they've got is another catastrophe.
Since Friday, heavy clouds have drowned the streets of Les Cayes and washed away the only bridge that ties the town with its surroundings. In neighboring towns, Roche Jaboin and Debouchette, where Hope's Star handed out emergency relief for three consecutive days during the drought to prevent hunger, people still live in temporary shelters built from remnants from the homes of Hurricane Matthew destroyed.
Now, many of the shacks (read houses) have been flushed away - along with the new crops that have finally been planted.
The situation is acute - and we can not wait! Help us put an end to suffering in Haiti!
