BELTON - An orphanage in Haiti overseen by a local Belton organization is damaged after crossing paths with Hurricane Matthew. The organization is now calling on Central Texans to help.
Hope for the Hungry is a local charity organization that's provided help and resources to communities in Haiti for decades. Directors of the organization say they weren't expecting to see such devastation from the hurricane and now need community help to fill the large demand for food, money and building supplies.
"I got reports two days ago of the need for 35 million meals in the next 6 months to be sent down to Haiti, it's brutal it is devastating" says Jeff Pedigo, Hope for the Hungry Public Relations Director.
