Christian Aid in Haiti

Haiti is the country focussed on in this year's Christian Aid Week publicity and here is a chance to hear from the man co-ordinating the charity's work in Haiti.

Haiti, one of the poorest countries in the world, was hit by a hugely destructive earthquake in 2010 and a cholera outbreak has affected the country ever since then, & Hurricane Matthew hit them in 2016. These are the 2 major events but they have had other major storms too.

Prospery Raymond, the country manager in Haiti for Christian Aid, will share something of the experience of the people and the work of Christian Aid as they recover from two major natural disasters with the support of fund-raisers.

This will be held at 6.00pm on Sunday 29th April at Christ Church in central Solihull, 741 Warwick Road B91 3DG. The church is opposite House of Fraser.

Car parking behind the church off Union Road is limited but the Mell Square multi-story is opposite.
