In 2010, Haiti was struck by a magnitude 7.0 earthquake that drastically damaged the country. The disaster killed over 250,000 people, affected 3 million more, and destroyed a large percentage of the country’s infrastructure. The road to recovery has been difficult, as Haiti’s disorderly government prevents the people from receiving basic services such as education, electricity, health care, and water. Haiti struggles the most with poverty and lack of opportunities; it is the poorest country in the western hemisphere.
Hear the Cry has been involved in efforts to restore the country for the past ten years. We work with multiple amazing partners in order to spread God’s love and bring resources to the resilient, joy-filled people of Haiti.
Mamababy Haiti is a non-profit birth center, health clinic, and midwifery school committed to providing mothers and their babies with quality care. Most women in Haiti are unable to afford medical help for themselves or their newborns, and many give birth at home, resulting in alarmingly high infant mortality rates. Mamababy turns no one away, and every mother who seeks care will receive it lovingly and at no cost.
Restoration Ministries aims to spread God’s love to Haiti through many different community development efforts. Pastor Lafleur, a Jacmel native, leads his team as they construct and equip chapels throughout Haiti, providing the people with pastoral leadership training. Restoration Ministries also builds houses for people in the community, provides children with daily lunches, and more.
