Canadian Lutherans Visit Relief Efforts in Haiti

Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada's (ELCIC) Director of Communications and Stewardship Trina Gallop is currently travelling in Haiti along with Canadian Lutheran World Relief (CLWR) Executive Director Robert Granke and Community Relations Director Tom Brook, as well as Lutheran Church-Canada Mission and Social Ministry Director Rev. Dr Leonardo Neitzel. They have been spending the last week visiting relief and development projects of the Lutheran World Federation (LWF) which are supported by funds raised during CLWR's Appeal for Haiti.

Lutherans throughout Canada donated almost $1.2 million following the devastating earthquake that struck Haiti in January of this year.

Reflections on the trip can be viewed via the following links.
