Heart for Haiti - Evangelical Alliance gives support
The Evangelical Alliance Scotland is proud to announce its support of a very special event in Edinburgh on 11 June. Heart For Haiti draws in a superb array of worship leaders, and will raise vital funds that will impact a very significant project close to Port au Prince.
Heart For Haiti, organised by Compassion UK and Lemon Aid, will feature worship led by Graham Kendrick, Stuart Townend, Brenton Brown and Cathy Burton. The event's host will be Andy Hawthorne, who, along with promoter Justin Dowds (from the Lemon Aid charity) - and many of the worship leaders - has made many previous trips to see the work carried out by Compassion in Haiti. The head of Compassion in Haiti, Guillbaud Saint-Cyr will be bringing an update of the current situation in the country.
With the venue, backline and production all being donated free of charge, the event stands to raise a considerable amount of money which will add vital support to the essential rebuilding work needed to the Wesleyan Hospital on the island of La Gonâve, just outside Port-au-Prince.
Since the earthquake struck in January, Justin Dowds and Lemon Aid have made four trips to the country, taking with them tonnes of medical supplies and lending much needed support to the teams on the ground.
