so, the first of the rains fell last night in haiti. while i nestled under the warm quilts in my cozy bed, many brothers and sisters were watching raindrops sieve through the tightly woven threads of their makeshift fabric tents. others cupped their palms to catch the free water being delivered from above in an effort to quench their severely parched throats. yet even more shivered under the cold rains, having no other place to call home but the earth beneath their bare feet. while others sang praises unto the Most High as the heavens opened up.
with the rainy season only three (3) weeks away, i can only pray that more aid reach the mass in time to save their lives. the NGO (non-govermental organisation) i've been donating to, Wyclef's Yéle Haiti, has prepared and distributed approximately 52,000 hot meals to the people of Haiti thus far. Can you imagine how comforting it must feel to sit down and have a hot meal amidst all this disaster? Yéle has also delivered family food kits, clean drinking water and medical supplies to help quake survivors. Admittedly, this is only a small dent but as my grandmother would say, "every mickle mek a muckle."
(translation: every little bit adds up). blessed love ayiti.
