Employees, donors, and friends of The Navigators are asking what efforts are being made by The Navigators to help with the Haiti earthquake disaster.
While The Navigators does not have staff or active ministry programs in Haiti, we are deeply concerned about how to provide tangible emergency relief to the people of Haiti as well as long-term assistance.
The Navigators urges its employees, donors, and friends to make financial contributions to Compassion International, a fellow non-profit organization headquartered in Colorado Springs. Compassion International has a deep and historic outreach in Haiti that currently serves 65,000 Haitian children in poverty. Compassion has been operating in Haiti for more than 40 years. They have 75 staff in Haiti that work through 237 child development centers. Compassion is well poised to provide immediate emergency assistance, and they are committed to continuing long-term solutions that will outlast the important global interest and media attention created by the earthquake.
The Navigators' staff is made up of citizens from many countries and nationalities. We are joining together to make financial contributions to Compassion International and other organizations that are well equipped to provide Haiti disaster relief for both immediate and long-term needs.
The Navigators shares in the sorrow and grief of the Haitian people. We also offer our prayers and financial assistance. Compassion maintains a blog to provide up-to-date information on relief efforts. We encourage you to read and pray.
We endorse Compassion’s efforts and credentials in Haiti. We urge all concerned people to join the Navigator family in funding Compassion’s disaster relief efforts with generous gifts.
