Pray for Haiti in the aftermath of the 2021 earthquake

Please keep Haiti in your prayers as the country recovers from the devastating 7.2 magnitude earthquake that hit the country on Saturday, 14 August. 

Officials have confirmed at least 2,207 people have died. Homes, churches and schools were among the buildings destroyed in the quake.  

Communities were also battered by floods and mudslides as tropical storm, Grace, hit Haiti on the 17 August. 

Compassion has a long history of serving the children of Haiti and we're making every effort to support our affected church partners and the children in their care. We’ve learnt that at least seven Compassion church projects have suffered substantial damage in the earthquake, and our team are urgently checking on all the children in our programme and their families.  

As always, we'll contact you directly if your sponsored child has been impacted.


Pray with us for those impacted by the Haiti earthquake 

  • Please pray for all those affected by the quake, for children and families in the middle of this devastation as well as our staff and church partners.
  • Please pray for rescuers and other first responders who have now been mobilised.
  • Pray also for safety and shelter for those affected by tropical storm, Grace. May those in Haiti find comfort in the Lord at this crucial time and may aid quickly get to those who need it.
