Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. Over the last decade, natural disasters have left thousands of families displaced and countless children orphaned. They suffer from severe poverty, polluted water, extreme malnutrition, difficult access to education, and many children are trapped in a form of domestic slavery called restavek.
Through Philadelphia Baptist Church in Vernet, Haiti, Forward Edge runs a child-focused community development program that provides regular, nutritious meals, tutoring support, and spiritual discipleship to more than 100 children, many of whom are at risk of suffering under the restavek system.
Our partner in Haiti is Pastor Chavannes, a former presidential candidate and missionary widely known and respected in the nation of Haiti.
Any team of 10 or more is invited to serve in Haiti. Total trip cost for each team member is $850.
