In 2008, hurricanes devastated the southern coast of Haiti. As the greatest need in the fall of that year was hurricane relief, C.A.S.S. chose to send funds to purchase food and cooking oil for 50 families associated with the PAZAPA children's centre in Jacmel Haiti. It was recognized that many of the families with disabled children at the centre were experiencing tremendous loss as a result of three significant storms in a matter of only a few weeks. Families lost crops, livestock, homes and some, most tragically, lost family members. Rice, cornmeal and oil were purchased with C.A.S.S. funds and delivered to the centre, and distributed to families of greatest need.
