Our most urgent need right now is money for Etienne to continue the critical work of sourcing and distributing food to those who have no other way to get it.

  • New Year, New Projects

    Our first Board meeting of 2023 was devoted to reviewing and funding the new projects Etienne proposed for this year.

    Water: Colse is a mountain village without a nearby water source. Residents have to walk down the mountain for water, then carry it back up. Etienne will buy water storage tanks and transport them to the village.$7000
    Goats: Etienne plans to state a new goat program for Coquione, a village above Charbonnier. He needs money to buy the goats, transport them, and run the training program for the recipients.$7000
    Seeds: Etienne proposed buying seed for farmers in Les Anglais. We are requesting that he also buy additional seeds to restart the community garden on church grounds.$3000
    Agronomy Agent: Etienne recently hired a new agent, Mr. Legoute, to help farmers establish crops of cacao, coffee, and bananas in Bwa Picon. His pay is $600/quarter.$600
    Transportation: Rebuild Etienne’s old, non-working motorcycle. Having this to use when he doesn’t need the truck will save a lot of expensive fuel and reduce wear and tear on the truck. We will buy the parts in the US and ship them to him through Agape Air.$1500
    Fuel: We need to send Etienne money to cover his increased fuel costs due to huge price increases in Haiti.$1000
    Amount to send Etienne (sent on 1/26/2023)$18,600
    Motorcycle parts to buy in the US$1500
    Total Spend$20,100

    We will continue to hold $6000 in reserve to repair the wells damaged in the August 2021 earthquake. Parts shortages, damaged roads, and too-busy well drillers have prevented us from being able to schedule the repairs. We’ll ask Etienne to check in with the well-drilling company to see if they are able to start work soon on these wells.

  • Schools and Hot Lunch Start This Week

    News from our partners at Reciprocal Ministries International:

    Haitian schools are to open on November 7!  Pray that peace reigns and this is allowed to happen.
    Police have taken back the fuel depots from the gangs. RMI staff will begin to surreptitiously distribute the Hot Lunch Program food to the schools in small unmarked trucks this week. Pray for the safety of the staff and vehicles.
