EAGLE GROVE, Iowa – GoServ Global, an Eagle Grove-based agency that works extensively with orphans in Haiti, has announced major losses due to damage caused by Hurricane Matthew.
GoServ Global has an orphanage, medical and dental clinic, and school in the city of Les Cayes, where orphans, widows, and displaced families are helped. Hurricane Matthew hit the city with 145 mph winds, destroying much of the community.
All of the people the agency was helping – an estimated 150 orphans, babies, and widows – survived the hurricane, but the agency lost crops, agricultural animals, and buildings.
