what we do
Since 1975, work groups have traveled to Fort Liberte several times a year. The trip projects vary according to the current need, but usually involve building projects, medical clinics, as well as health, educational and church projects. Each spring, at least one of trips includes photographing and maintaining records on all of our sponsored children.
The heart of our organization has always been friendships that form between those who go on trips together and with the Haitian friends they meet. Child sponsors have a chance to meet and visit in the home of the child they sponsor. The skills and interests of the people who make up the groups help form the purpose of the particular trip. Doctors, nurses, pastors, musicians, contractors, electricians, plumbers, teachers, farmers and youth have all found they have something to give- and even more to gain- from the experience of seeing Haiti. You will never see life the same way again.
Trips are organized in several states each year, usually sponsored by a local church. If you are interested in going on a trip, or forming a group, please contact Annette Crislip at firstname.lastname@example.org.
