howFar Haiti / HaitiWorks 2023 Update - Diane Moffi, Director / howFar Haiti

Praises to God for allowing us to continue to serve our folks in Haiti for another year! 

Every year is a challenge when working in Haiti.  2023 was no exception and may win the prize for the hardest year since our work began in 2012.  Gang violence has overshadowed daily life for most Haitians, especially in Port au Prince.

"An estimated 2 million people, including 1.6 million women and children, live in areas under gang control, she said, and children are getting killed and injured in crossfire, some on the way to school. Others are being forcibly recruited or they are joining armed groups out of sheer desperation,” Russell said.  Source APNews October 2023

But God has been with us everyday:

   We sponsored two VBS programs this summer where over 100 children heard the gospel message and were fed a good meal each day.


   Our medical outreach continues with many people receiving medicines and care for diseases, gunshot wounds, asthma, diabetes, high blood pressure, eye glasses, etc.


   Several feeding programs were held in various neighborhoods where malnutrition is a chronic problem.


    Several children have been sponsored to attend school.


   We invested in a community garden that feeds people fresh vegetables and fruits they cannot afford to buy.  Right now, we’re renting the land with hopes to purchase it one day soon.


   Our school in Cite Soleil is still up and running with profits from Haiti Works providing money for the teachers who are working without a regular paycheck.  We continue to pray for this school. Due to the gang violence in the area its difficult to have a regular schedule for classes.


   Several children and adults are suffering from PTSD because they’ve been in the middle of the violence and many have been driven from their homes with nothing except the clothes they are wearing.


    We have a new, small orphanage that we are sponsoring.

  Our current orphanage of 35 children was forced to leave their home in September and remain in another location because of gangs.  Please pray for their safety and for the children to return home soon.


Thank you all for your continued support through donations and prayers.  Everything we do is to the glory of God and He has blessed our ministry through you!
