Annual Session Update on Haiti Relief Efforts (2010)

September 10, 2010

President Julius R. Scruggs reported during the 130th Annual Session that the Convention has received approximately 1.1 MM in donations for the Haiti Relief effort.  The Convention has entered into an association with the African American Baptist Missionary Collaboration (AABMC - see below) to build approximately 1.000 family shelters in the Cabaret region of Haiti.  The AABMC will continue to work together for a period of one year and will re-evaluate their progress at that time.  A life-size sample of the family shelters to be built was on display in the exhibit hall during the Annual Session.
