On June 23rd, we’ll be sending a team down to Cap Haitien, Haiti. Led by Espwa VP, Chris Pfeiffer, the team will have some familiar faces from one of our partners, Pleasant Hills Church, as well as some staff from the Duquesne School of Pharmacy.
The team intends to meet with Dr. Eugene Maklin to view progress on the New Hope hospital. The hospital has undergone a drastic transformation since its inception last year. By employing Haitian construction workers, the project has also injected much needed capital into the economy while empowering the workers with an opportunity to use their talents and provide for their families. Dr. Maklin is especially looking forward to meeting with the representatives from the School of Pharmacy to investigate possible partnerships in the future.
On Monday, June 27th, the annual Peace & Joy beach trip will kick off. This event has become a staple in our ongoing relationship with the 18 families, as we show them love and have an all-around fun day at one of Haiti’s scenic beaches.
The team will also check in with Jovenel (Agrolide farm) and Frantz (Haitian Creole Tour), and see some recent updates to St. Anthony’s clinic.
Let’s be praying for the team’s safe travels on the way to and in country, and that God will use this trip to continue building up and empowering our friends in Haiti.
