Compassion has produced a :30 second spot giving your listeners an opportunity to help by donating to the Haiti earthquake relief fund. Download the spot HERE. 

Compassion has been in Haiti for more than 60 years and has an extensive network of church partners that are poised to immediately bring help and relief to those impacted by this disaster. Compassion’s network of over 300 church partners are beginning immediate work to bring food & hygiene kits to families, in addition to medical assistance.

Evaluating the damage has been difficult due to destroyed roads and communication systems, but we know:

  • At least 60,000 people have been affected. The death toll is expected to rise as the search for victims trapped under rubble continues.
  • A tropical depression is bringing up to 15 inches of rain, flooding and mudslides right now, further complicating the situation.
  • Hospitals are overwhelmed and in desperate need of medicine and other resources.

Compassion is available for interviews, other resources, or even a focused campaign on your morning drive to help those affected.

New Life Radio founder Daniel Johnson checks in with HisAir. Daniel tells us New LIfe Radio celebrates 2 years of operation from Odessa, Ukraine, after relocating from Moscow Russia due to extreme Russian government controls over freedom of religion, the press, and the Internet. Despite increasing restrictions against the Church in 2021, Russian listeners continue to hear solid Bible teaching and Christian music from New Life Radio, using the Hotbird satellite and on internet at www.NLRadio.net. As the evangelical community in Russia has little to no chance to develop Christian radio, NLR will continue to serve as they have, being Russia’s pioneer Christian FM, satellite, and internet radio station. Headed by Station manager Ivan Zhurakovski, a six person radio staff is working hard and asks for PRAYER for God’s wisdom and discernment as they deliver Christian radio during extremely tough times for the evangelical Church in Russia.,
