Why Haiti?

Mission Lazarus first got involved in Haiti in 2004, partnering with Healing Hands International and CRF Relief to provide emergency humanitarian aid to churches after hurricanes ravaged the country.

Years later, Mission Lazarus responded when the devastating earthquake of January 2010 destroyed much of Port au Prince. We provided anesthesia and antibiotics that were in great demand in field hospitals and sent our three nurses to Haiti to deliver the drugs and volunteer their services in a makeshift hospital.

Mission Lazarus started focused efforts in Haiti in the fall of 2010 by joining with a group of committed Christians who were already highly invested in making Christ known. The goal of this new partnership was to combine the proven life transforming practices of Mission Lazarus with the experience of the Haiti team.

Mission Lazarus currently has a primary school and a vocational school in the village of Gras, in northeast Haiti and is partnering with local churches to seek additional community development opportunities.
