Van for Ministries in Haiti

This project seeks to raise $38,000 to purchase a van for Kihomi and Nzunga to use in ministries for the Haitian Baptist Convention.

Goal: $38,000

About this Mission Project

Haiti is the poorest country in the Northern hemisphere. The Haitian Baptist Convention is the strongest witness in the country of how Jesus Christ can change a nation.

There is an ongoing need to teach, train, supervise, assess the needs of and assist the poor. One of the biggest obstacles is the lack of safe, reliable transportation. The Convention would like to host more mission groups, but can’t without a van. The women of Haiti are the instruments of change, but getting to their meetings and bringing aid is held back by a lack of transportation. Getting supplies for water pumps and delivering pigs and goats to children are challenging when you have to use motorcycles, tap-taps (taxis) and bicycles.
