Haiti

Trips to Haiti focus on partnering with the community on locally identified projects concentrating on clinics, churches and schools that better the lives of people in Petit-Goâve through improved health, improved worship space and education.

Haiti Update

On July 7, 2021, Haitian President Jovenel Moise was assassinated in his home. Haiti had already been experiencing several years of increased violence, gang activity, and food insecurity. Our partners have been working hard in the midst of difficult obstacles and have been (and will continue to be) a ray of light and hope in their communities. Please pray for them and their families in the coming days and weeks.

Please also pray:

  • For Haiti’s leaders to come together to establish a functioning government that is elected by the people
  • That there is justice and peace in the transition
  • For God’s grace and love to reign on all people, young and old, rich and poor
  • For the people of Haiti to come together in peace, joining forces to protect the most vulnerable
  • And that outside organizations, governments, non-profits, etc figure out when to help and when to get out of the way of local leaders

What to Expect on a Haiti Trip

Work & Activities

In our partnership with Haiti, Resurrection has focused on sustainable efforts that include community-based preventive health care training programs.  We continue to work with the Methodist Church in Haiti to serve those most directly affected by the devastation of hurricanes. While we have tentatively planned itineraries for each of our trips, those plans will change according to our partner's assessment of the most critical needs of the people of Haiti.

In addition to serving the health care needs of the people of Haiti, we also built computer labs in schools, strengthened Internet connections in our partner churches and worked with Compassion International to enrich the lives of Haitian children.
