The Power of Waiting: How Advent Can Help Us Connect with Those in Need
We invite you this season to join us in waiting, together – our supporters, our staff, and our Haitian brothers and sisters – as we look forward to hope.
Helping Families in Les Cayes Get Back on Their Feet
We communicated closely with our teams, and we were told that many people are living and sleeping in the streets, in empty fields, and in tents if possible. Bedsheets and cloths are the only thing shielding them from the intense sunlight and covering them from the rain. No kitchen access. No bathrooms. People are hungry, mourning, and many are still unable to locate loved ones.
Peace Over Violence
We mourn the assassination of Haiti's president, Jovenel Moïse, and stand in solidarity with those who choose peace over violence. We are working to ensure the continued safety and security of our team in Haiti, as well as assessing how we can support Haitian families during their time of need. We appreciate all of our partners and supporters who have reached out and have dedicated themselves to prayer.
A Whole Month of Raising Chickens to Feed Children
Our vision is involves creating employment and economic development in Haiti through sustainable businesses.What does that exactly mean? There are many organizations that distribute food, clothing, and necessities to families in need in Haiti. We asked the question: What happens afterwards? A huge amount of responsibility is required from the Elevating Chicken Farm's staff, who must also possess a lot of competence and daily attention. By having a staff to run the farm, this allows dozens of jobs to be created that support real families and makes it possible for them to feed their families and achieve economic stability.
The Elevating Bakeries Are Raising Haiti Up
In four regions in Haiti, Elevating Christian Ministries has constructed and developed bakeries that employ 43 bakers in Haiti and offer quality bread for sale to local markets (and feed 30,000+ children every single day!)We often get asked – how do the bakeries play into your mission of feeding children? Yes, our mission is to feed children in Haiti… but what makes Elevating Christian Ministries different than other organizations is how we do it. Our vision is involves creating employment and economic development in Haiti through sustainable businesses.
