There is only one road from Port-au-Prince to Les Cayes and it is now impassable. One of the mountains that has to be climbed has split in two leaving a huge chasm, effectively cutting off means of transportation for people and goods. Other parts of the road are buried under rubble and landslides. People take buses or tap-taps, disembark to traverse the obstacles on foot and then try and pick up transportation on the other side. Those of us in the south are dependent on Port-au-Prince for food, fuel and all commodities. This leaves us in a desperate situation as we only have enough food for two weeks. I anticipate that there will be a mass exodus of people from Port-au-Prince once the dead are found and buried. People will be arriving in desperate need of medical care, shelter and food. We need your help to be able to address their needs. Please continue to pray for our Haitian sisters and brothers. May God bless all our efforts.
