A New Ministry Field: howFarHaiti

Since howFar’s inception in 2004, our evangelical and humanitarian aid initiatives have focused on life transformation in sub-Saharan Africa. However, we have not been blind to the complex issues that developing nations face in our own region. 

Diane Moffi, a longtime board member of howFar Ministries and The How Far Foundation, has had a passion for sharing the gospel and serving the people of Haiti and has led several teams to the impoverished island nation.

Diani Moffi loving children in Haiti

In early 2015, the How Far Board of Directors recognized her efforts and unanimously agreed to join her work by launching a new initiative called howFarHaiti.

Her first project was to lead a team to visit orphanages near Port au Prince.  Scores of small independent orphanages lovingly struggle to care for abandoned children, but because of few resources the children are chronically undernourished, ill-clothed and uneducated.

Children wearing the Shoe That Grows

Through your generosity, the howFar team shared Christ’s love with them, fed them, and provided shoes to 450 children! Not just any shoe – they received The Shoe That Grows. A durable shoe that expands as the child grows lasting them for five years! (See: theshoethatgrows.org and “Do Children in Haiti Really Need Shoes?” at howFar.org)

Feet are washed as they hear of Jesus

Our goal in Haiti is to share the gospel of salvation with as many as God allows and to love them as we love ourselves.
