Nine LDS chapels located in and around Port-au-Prince have been opened as shelters to support local communities.

Are you aware that when the hurricane pass through there last fall, these chapels were open to members only. Further, those haitan members who did seek shelter there received no food or water during the course of their stay.

Your information is out of context:

"While most Mormon buildings were being used as hospitals and shelters, the particular building mentioned was taken by the government to use as a command center. The [volunteer, unpaid] leader of the congregation did not realize he might have been able to convince the government to allow them to also set up shelters. Once the building was taken over by the government, he appears to have felt it was entirely under their control."

I would like to see the source of this statement. BTW I'm in SKYPE with members in Haiti.
