Christian-based humanitarian organizations continue to supply sustainable self-help and development, disaster relief and refugee assistance in the recovering island nation. Despite the violence that has been scorching the volatile land, the minority Christians strongly hold onto their faith as their greatest hope.

At that end, the Church World Service, the humanitarian arm of 36 denominations in the United States announced that it will begin distributing its first shipment of food and medicines this week. The aid, valued at $151,003-arrived in the Dominican Republic last week.
