A Voice of Hope from Haiti-Report #1 Brigitte Gaillis


Based in the airport in Port-au-Prince, Gaillis is doing outreach to survivors.  Over a 1,000 families have benefitted from relief efforts such as mobile kitchens and hygiene products.   Residents are given tickets so they can be called by number to receive aid.  Progress is slow, given the numerous logistical challenges.  Thousands of families are living in makeshift housing in hot, muggy conditions.  Gaillis indicated that this has been the hardest assignment she’s had.  The scope of loss and devastation is unfathomable.  It’s a very emotional experience.
Gaillis was deployed on January 13 and will continue to serve Haiti in its time of need.  We will check in with her periodically to better understand how Red Cross is fulfilling its humanitarian mission.

  1. The apostles creed
    I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of Heaven and earth;
    and in Jesus Christ, His only Son Our Lord,
    Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried.
    He descended into Hell; the third day He rose again from the dead;
    He ascended into Heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of God, the Father almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead.
    I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body and life everlasting.
    Amen.
