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.

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.
Teams fly into Port-au-Prince. Resurrection will arrange the flight logistics so that the team is on the same flight.
In the Eglise Methodiste d'Haiti Guesthouse in Pétionville, the accommodations are bunk beds with a separate room for the men and women. In Petit-Goâve, there are twin beds with separate rooms for men and women and private bathroom facilities.
A typical breakfast includes toast, eggs, fresh fruit, juice. A typical lunch or dinner may include meat (chicken, goat, beef) with rice, beans, and veggies.
Haiti trips are open to adults, and children ages 16 and older accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
Currently, U.S. citizens (U.S. passport holders) visiting Haiti for three months or less do not need visas.
