Haiti Relief Effort

Rebecca Maesato is more than familiar with Haiti. She was again aiding Haiti orphanages a mere week prior to the devastating 7.0 earthquake that has shaken shelter, security and hearts. This morning she awoke in Haiti to realities of orphans, many who were already severely ill, that are drinking contaminated water amidst the crumbled walls that a week ago provided meager shelter.

Today's Neighborhood News, a yourldsneighborhood's newsletter, features Rebecca Maesato in a Personal Touch interview by Rebecca Cressman. Learn more about this registered nurse and amazing mother of eleven, eight are Haitian, who has a passion for humanitarian service. She walks the walk and talks the talk. She is making a difference today in the forgotten orphanages that are desperate for help.

What are your thoughts and feelings about the destruction and events in Haiti? How are you sharing this news with your family?


  1. Thanks for your article. I can't believe the destruction and suffering caused by this earthquake. It makes the world seem a bit smaller to view photos of these people and know that they need our prayers.

  2. Thank you for stopping by, Rachelle. This is a time like no other. Rebecca Maesato is a great example of just how small the world has become. Home one day and then aiding orphans in rubble within a few days of the earthquake. Our prayers extend to both victims and the rescuers.
