DES MOINES, Iowa — An Iowa-based nonprofit that went on a humanitarian mission in Haiti says many of its projects were devastated by Hurricane Matthew.
The Des Moines Register reports (http://dmreg.co/2cZxgBO ) the Eagle Grove-based GoServe Global has built orphanages, a medical clinic, a dental clinic and a school in Les Cayes, Haiti. The nonprofit says most of those buildings sustained major damage.
While the entire surrounding community was largely demolished, GoServ says the roughly 150 people who live in its projects are safe.
Two Iowa missionaries, Les and Catherine DeRoos, who volunteer with GoServ through Laborers With Christ in Alta, Ia., were in Haiti on Wednesday.
