Charles City, Iowa – Hurricane Matthew has already ravaged many southern states as well as a large portion of the country of Haiti. As of Monday, 1,000 Haitains had lost their lives. Many lost their homes, belongings and crops. However, one area of Haiti that area residents have been supporting in the last couple of years were lucky.
Sue Ayers, one of the committee members of the Homes for Haiti group explains.
However, Ayers said that another area that the group traveled to in 2013 has seen major devastation, except for the Sukup homes the group purchased and built.
Ayers said several of the Sukup safety homes were used to keep as many Haitians as possible safe from the hurricane.
Local members of the international honorary society Alpha Delta Kappa will receive a $50,000 grant to support continued missions for Homes for Haiti.
