SIL International Media Release

Haiti earthquake response

(January 2010) Executive Director Freddy Boswell and President John Watters express their grief and concern on behalf of SIL International over the loss of life and the devastating injuries suffered by the people of Haiti. SIL joins others around the world in prayer for speedy relief and healing for those suffering such loss in this Caribbean nation.

SIL focuses on language development and works together with other organizations that provide humanitarian relief. SIL encourages donations to Food for the Hungry in their relief efforts but SIL has no work of its own in Haiti. SIL has worked with Food for the Hungry in other countries and knows it to be a reputable organization for channeling financial aid.
