There are four basic project groups:
- Construction and rebuilding projects
- Medical and Dental teams to serve children and those in need
- Bible schools for children
- Food distribution for hungry people
Construction Teams are involved in projects that serve the church and the community. The projects will be arranged beforehand. You may be working at a church or a school or building a home for a needy family. All work is done by hand including mixing and pouring cement. Haitian workers will assist the mission teams.
Medical and Dental Teams
Mobile Medical Clinics are held in the schools, churches or in our Medical Clinic. Stations will set up to see patients. Each station will have a medical professional, an assistant and an interpreter. A pharmacy will be set up to dispense medicines. The J.B. Hunt Haiti Medical clinic is actively serving our sponsored children through our Haitian medical staff. The clinic serves as a base of operations for our medical teams.
We also have Dental Teams that come to serve the sponsored children, their families and people in community. They are able to work at remote sites, but most of their work is done at the Medical Clinic. They come prepared to do extractions and repairs. They have also sealed children’s teeth to prevent cavities. Most people in Haiti do not have the opportunity to see a dentist. The work of the Dental Teams is a great blessing.
Bible School For Children
Bible Schools are one of the best ways to share the Gospel with children. This is where many children first hear about Jesus. Preparations will be done ahead of time by a team coordinator who will give assignments. They will also let you know what supplies you need to bring to Haiti. The Haitian children love Bible School.
Food Distribution To Hungry People
In difficult times, the Haitian people need help. Haiti Relief provides food for hungry families. Because of devastating hurricanes and the earthquake, Mission To Haiti has distributed over 750 thousand pounds of beans and rice in family-sized packages. Beans and rice combined provide a complete protein.
There are other projects that a mission team will become involved. Mission To Haiti sponsors two small vocational schools where young people are learning to sew. We have a group of seamstresses who have come to teach young people sewing skills. We have a group that has come to hold a Youth Conference, teaching young people Christian leadership skills. We also have a team that comes to hold Conferences for pastors and their wives. These teams are a great blessing to the churches and schools.
