Food Container Held in Haiti

Our fully loaded container of food and water is being held at Haiti customs! We followed protocol and sent our shipment with all of the necessary legal documents and financial backing. There is no valid explanation for the hold up and even worse, there's no easy answer. In fact, in writing this latest news item, it's difficult to ascertain just the right words to convey the message. We have no concrete plea for help. Customs isn't asking for additional funds, other than the fifty dollars per day holding fee. Prayer is what it comes down to now. The shipment is ready, sitting in customs, and delivery is out of our control. We at Help the Children ask that we all join together in united prayer for the goods to reach the desperate people of Haiti. Our heartfelt thanks!
