- The feeding program started in 2013 continued by providing over $22,000 worth of beans and rice to the neediest people through 30 neighborhood churches. (That’s about 88,000 meals!)
- Again, we provided 1,200 lbs of beans and 600 lbs of rice to AIDs patients who cannot take their medicine without food.
- Our teams in January and July worked on the construction of two church community buildings. One was completed with a roof and the other, much larger and much higher up the hill was partially completed. Our US teams work side by side local laborers. Blocks were hauled up a mountainous hike, along with bags of concrete and rocks. These church buildings are more than just churches, they are also schools, community centers and often serve as emergency shelters for orphans.
- We organized 10 days of vacation bible school for children from multiple communities of Cap Haitian.
- We provided funds for critical home repairs damaged by hurricane flooding.
- Hosted a Christmas Party for the children in the community where we work.
- We helped our Haitian Leader, Patrick Charles get access to dialysis and medical tests that we hope will enable him to have a kidney transplant. While this may seem routine in the States, the poor of Haiti have little to no access to basic lifesaving medical care. Many people there suffer and die from curable and preventable diseases.
- Vilouse Charles passed away in February 2017 from Breast Cancer. We are so saddened by her loss. She was a dear friend and instrumental in our micro lending and sustainable feeding program.
