Generator Appeal: Thank You for Giving!

At Radio-TV 4VEH, we rely on generators for electricity to produce and broadcast programs that reach, teach and serve the people of Haiti every day. In May, we had a critical generator problem that meant 4VEH was off the air for two days. Listeners inside and outside Haiti told us how much they missed the broadcasts. One listener, Siloue, said: “You’re in my prayers. God knows how important you are to me.” 

With prayer, we launched an appeal to our listeners and supporters in Haiti and around the world to help raise $50,000 to replace one generator and repair two others. Praise God, these funds have been donated!

We thank God for Dave Shaferly (former OMS Haiti field leader, now retired), who came to Haiti straight away with repaired parts for one of the generators at the broadcast center, to get 4VEH back on the air.

Others stepped up to donate funds, including churches and individuals in Haiti, Canada and the USA. One listener pledged $2,000 and challenged other Haitians to give, too.

With the funds given, a new generator will be purchased (and two generators repaired) that will help provide reliable electricity for the ministry.

THANK YOU for giving to our Generator Appeal so that 4VEH can stay on the air to reach, teach and serve the people of Haiti through media.
