Today is Dessalines Day, a highly celebrated holiday across Haiti. Jean-Jacques Dessalines was a leader of the Haitian Revolution and the first ruler of an independent Haiti in 1805. Under Dessalines, Haiti became the first country in the Americas to permanently abolish slavery.
Today is a truly symbolic day as protesting ensues for the 6th week in a row. People continue to fight for their freedom and their right to better lives. We recognize the amazing feat of Haiti being the first independent black nation, but we grieve the fact that more than half the population lives on less than $2.40 a day.
Despite the Semi-Presidential Republic government system, the country has been overrun by corruption for years. People are fighting for better lives and more opportunities - it is devastating to witness the destruction that corrupt leaders, poor systems, and completely deforested terrain have placed on this country. The opposition party along with people from all walks of life are protesting President Moïse - the young, union workers, university professors, artists, business associations. If a change is made, many problems and challenges are still to follow.
Please pray for the future of Haiti - from the beginning Haitians have fought for justice, and we know that they will continue to fight until they receive what they deserve. 🇭🇹🙏🏿

We are incredibly grateful for this pastor duo! Pastor Charlemont and Pastor DieuFranc lead our Gonaives church up north - we have over 50 families in the the church and it continues to grow thanks to their great leadership and the support that they pour out into their community. We also run a feeding program out of the church for about 300 children in the area.
These pastors also facilitate our micro lending program in Gonaives - they finished up the training last week for our 11 women who are in our 2nd round program. We are excited about the growth of this program and its ability to help sustain the community in the long run. We hope to expand our micro lending efforts in the other communities we work in.
Times are extremely challenging in Haiti during this season, but we cannot begin to express our gratitude for the support our pastors have been to the communities we work in all over Haiti. We are all in this together and we continue to trust in God’s strength and guidance during this time.

Our crèche kids are happy to be back in school this week despite being out most of the week last week due to the situation of the country.
We are thankful that all of our 5 village schools have remained open the past few weeks despite the protests happening. We are in need of sponsors for the children in our village schools - you can bless a child and their family and provide hope for a child’s future by sponsoring a child for $150 for the school year. This includes their school uniform, teacher salaries, books, and more. You can reach out to Camille at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested!

Yesterday, I was kindly greeted as usual by Ocean, one of our crèche security guards who has worked at our crèche for years. After chatting for a couple minutes, I come to find out that Ocean had to leave his home at 3am that morning and walk for over 2 hours just to find public transport to get up the mountain to go to work. Ocean lives near the airport which is about an 80 minute drive from Kenscoff. Ocean was completely exhausted before even beginning his 24 hour shift, but also relieved to have made it to work safely despite the roadblocks (made from placing burning tires, large rocks, containers, trucks, scrap metal, or other materials across the roads) and protests.
Stories like these remind us of how devastating this political crisis is to every single person in Haiti, which has caused a 6-week gas shortage, rising inflation, and violent widespread protests. Many Haitians today are sacrificing their time and safety just to get to work so that they can make money to barely pay for their children to eat and maybe have enough left to send them to school due to the skyrocketing prices in food, transportation, and most other goods in addition to less available work. There is an extremely limited amount of gas in the country due to the government’s inability to pay for gasoline waiting at the port, which has mounted to over $130 million they have yet to pay. Corruption is at the forefront of Haiti’s political system, and for the country to see any improvement, this must change.
“With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” - Matthew 19:26

Countless people stood in line at the Kenscoff gas station on Sunday with their gas cans, motos and trucks waiting to restock on this currently scarce resource. On the drive up the mountain people lined up outside stores from town to town to refill their propane tanks and water jugs and there were traffic jams around any open gas stations. The effects of the protests are weighing on so many families. We will never stop praying for a better government and for justice to be pursued in this beautiful country.

These 4 really wanted to show off their pearly whites after going to the dentist this week! Eleven of our Creche kids were seen at our very own pediatric dental clinic. We are so grateful to offer this to our kids! ... See MoreSee Less
We are shouting from the roof tops today. We are so thankful the dental clinic successfully opened today. A BIG Thank You to Dr. Anderson & Gloria Anderson for their vision and Highlands Church (Scottsdale, AZ) for their support and collaborative efforts to bring pediatric dental services to Kenscoff, Haiti.
In May 2019, Dr. Anderson, Mike Claudio, and our Medical Director Sharon Judie traveled to Haiti and interviewed six dentists and five local women who would be trained as dental assistants. Once the candidates were chosen, Dr. Anderson and Gloria returned to train the dental assistants stock the clinic and finalize operations.
The dental clinic will be open two days a month serving children in the Kenscoff area. The clinic is located just above the medical clinic.
Welcome to Dr. Alexandre and our two dental assistants Anne Rose & Rosaline! ... See MoreSee Less
