Political and health conditions in Haiti continue to fall apart and degrade. The assassination of President Jovenel Moïse and ongoing constitutional crisis will only cause further suffering, violence and bloodshed for the people. The PSN invites you to join us by signing this petition to urge President Biden to immediately send doses of the COVID-19 vaccines to Haiti. Addressing the current crisis in Haiti requires stopping the spread of COVID-19.
Plus, the hopeful and faithful work of the Passionists through the work of St. Like Foundation Hospital, including Fr. Rick Frechette and Fr. Hugo Esparza is stretched beyond breaking. The hospitals are running out oxygen for the large spike in COVID patients and if they find it the cost is excessive. Please keep this work in your prayers and if you can, make a donation to their work through the website setup by Fr. Hugo. It is here: https://spphaiti.com/
Also Fr. Hugo has created a podcast series to tell the story of their work, intended to be educational, informative and current. The purpose is to talk about everyday Haitian life as well as "hopes and doubts." The series, Ask a Haitian Ask a Foreigner features Fr. Hugo as the foreigner and Sarah Exantus is the Haitian. The conversation is sharp and delightful, addressing questions such as "What is a quality in Haitian life that most expresses the Haitian 'heart?'" or, "What do you think about Christian missioners who come to Haiti?" There are six short episode so far in the series.
