OUR HISTORY IN HAITI

In the Fall of 2007, we knew that it was time for Brookview get involved in the fight against poverty.   After careful consideration, we decided to see how God might use us in the poverty stricken nation of Haiti.So in April of 2008, a team of twelve from Brookview, traveled to Haiti to investigate the needs.  Since that time, we have been partnering with a couple of different organizations to provide relief through nutrition, clean water, education, and many other necessities.  All of this has been done in the name of Christ.

 

OUR PARTNER IN HAITI

We are currently partnering with an organization on the ground in Haiti called Eben-Ezer Ministries to serve and financially support people in Gonaives, about a three hour drive North of Port Au Prince.  In our partnership with Eben-Ezer, we are committed to providing support through education and training as well as finding ways to come alongside of communities to empower and equip them to help themselves.

 

OUR CURRENT FUNDRAISING PROJECT: Purely Haiti

Our next 5k Walk for clean water will be held on Sunday, May 7, 2017.  For more information and project updates, please visit www.purelyhaiti.org.

TRAVEL TO HAITI

We’ve taken many trips to Haiti since 2008, and have done a variety of different things based on the expressed needs of our partners there.  We try to travel there once a year to check-in on our water projects and sometimes we bring a team of people from Brookview.  Our last team trip was in October, 2016.  Here is a video that shares thoughts from team members.
