After the devastating earthquake in Haiti, there are thousands of orphans who have truly lost everything. In one moment, all they knew was taken away. For many of these children, they have never had the chance to say goodbye.

Doug Phillips in cooperation with local pastors returned to Haiti earlier this month to organize a memorial service for more than 100 orphans.

Earlier today officials in Haiti announced the death toll to be more than 230,000 people–a number which is expected to rise in the weeks ahead.

The incredible number of shattered families have led many to look for ways to reach out to the growing numbers of orphans in that country. I recently spoke with Doug Phillips, President of Vision Forum Ministries, who with a small team traveled to Haiti to participate in rescue efforts at a number of orphanages destroyed in the quake.

If you liked to watch Doug’s reports from the field, they are available through his Vimeo channel.
